Eastern Blue Bird finished!


Well I added a background and I really like the green beside the blue and orange. Drawing the piece of wood beneath him was a bit of a struggle but I like how it turned out. Looks just like my porch railing!

Birds are going crazy at my feeder. I also took a ride to see the gooslings and got some great pictures. I saw one group of 12 babies in the lake with mom and dad! I don't know if they were babysitting or the if something happened to the original mom, or if they just had 12 babies! I'm used to seeing between 3 and 6 babies most of the time. It would be awesome to draw the entire group. I'd need a really large piece of paper to start! I may do a small group of the babies first!

And I sent my husband to get some photos of a robin's babies in his daughters lilac tree, but they are soooo ugly at this stage. I may have to send him back in a few days when they have some feathers! And Mary directed me to her blog for some shots of some baby bluebirds! Again, so ugly they are cute!!!!

What a beauty! I really adore your work, every single piece (I guess you probably know by now)! And they get better and EVEN better!
Have you done a kingfisher already? They've always been among my favorites since I saw one on a sticker as a kid. :)

I haven't done a kingfisher. I'll have to look them up! I want to do at least 100 birds this year, so I may squeeze one in! I keep getting suggestions of people's favorites! I just make a decision based on...really nothing! I was only thinking of doing a stellers jay because I had all my blue pencils out and ready! LOL!! But I just got some nice pictures of Canada Geese babies so.......hmm???

Your bluebird is beautiful. The color is stunning and the bird seems poised to fly off the page!

Excellent! I love the reflected blue in his eyes! And I have to say it again, that grouping in your brother's furniture store...I crave it! But it has to be all of them. Together. Like that! Beautiful!

I see you went with shortening the tail just a tad (or row of feathers). He looks wonderful.
