THE BIRDS -- The Birds!
I'm really enjoying this month's theme of birds for Cathy Johnson's former students. I didn't realize how much fun they are to sketch!
I've added watercolor to the hummingbird and the goose I sketched. My dh 'thinks' he saw the hummingbirds we usually have this time of year -- so after I post this, I'm heading to the kitchen to fix some sugar water to hopefully lure our colorful visitors.
I sketched the goose from a photograph -- I just didn't have time during my two days of work I had after returning from my daughter's. Our campus is FILLED with geese and this time of year, their goslings ... so cute to see on the PONDS -- but a true traffic hazzard to get around campus -- let alone WALK on the grass! LOL
I've also sketched and watercolored a cardinal. Our trees and feeders are filled with cardinals each year. Our shopping budget reflects the pounds of sunflower seeds we add to the feeders!
