The other day, I spotted a beautiful little bird on our deck neither of us has seen before. I saw him several times throughout the day, and then by the following day, he was gone. Found him in our trusty Audobon field guide and it turns out he was an Eastern Phoebe, migrating south. So of course, I had to draw him for this month’s birdie celebration!
Time has been short of late, so I sketched him pretty quickly with a couple of Polychromos colored pencils and then added a bit of a hasty background with my Cotman travel palette. I’m looking forward to seeing all of the terrific artwork from the many artists who join together on the eighth of each month to celebrate our freedom-loving feathered friends. Find out more about the official Draw A Bird Day holiday from A-Wing and A-Way at this link.
I’m taking a creative blogging break for a little while beginning this weekend, but I look forward to making a wrap-up post with links to everyone’s artwork when I re-enter the blogosphere! Happy peeps and chirps to all today! Peace.
