I saw this post from Donna at Bay Photos by Donna yesterday in my feed, and I knew right away I had to try and make artwork out of some of her fantastic images. Donna is a Maryland girl vacationing in Okeechobee, Florida, and she’s capturing some amazing birds inside her lens, and sharing them with all of us here at WordPress!
I was taken with this bird because it looks as though it’s getting ready to soar into the sky. It’s on the brink, hasn’t yet lifted off, and maybe that’s why this image grabbed hold of me hard. So I’ve tried it now in Neocolor II water-soluble crayons (which is this image) and in Polychromos colored pencils.
I’ll post the colored pencil sketch tomorrow, and I’d like to get your thoughts as to which one is more appealing to you. I’m learning a lot about these Neocolor crayons, and I’m finding that they help me to quickly and without fuss or mess bring my feelings about a subject to the page. Til then, my friends! Peace.
