Cardinals Rule (#45): 100 Face Challenge

I saw a bunch of lovely cardinals come up in my feed over the weekend from Kathy’s post at Backyard Bird Nerd…..and I just had to grab the Neocolors and sketch one.


I’ve not tried to go for precision with this medium. For me, it’s about getting something pretty on the page now and recording my impressions of a beautiful image. Cardinals have always been right up there in my top 5 favorite birds, and this little female hit the spot for me. Really, it’s about any excuse to grab the Neos. πŸ™‚

Happy Wednesday…..this week is flying by! I hope you’re dancing! Peace.

    1. I’ve been playing for over six months with them, Sharon. I started with abstracts, which made it easier, because for me, control doesn’t matter as much there. Really helped me to understand their properties, and there are also lots of YouTubes out there demonstrating them as well. I wish I had your skills with the Tombows! You really rock those. Glad you enjoyed the cardinal. πŸ™‚

  1. Love Cardinals! They are one of my favorites. During the snow storm the other day there were 4 male cardinals feasting at my bird feeder. Love them and your beautiful sketches. πŸ€“

  2. She is lovely, Laura! ❀️ I’d recognize she was a Cardinal just by her beak! We don’t get them here where I live – so I’m enjoying Kathy’s photos of them and your drawings! πŸŽ¨πŸ’•


I'd love to hear from you! Constructive criticism is most appreciated. Thank you!
