Chickadee

All the birds at my feeder are all fluffed up against the cold. I sketched this from a photo reference for the chickadee (thanks for the correction!!) that seem to enjoy our mix of sunflower seeds and dried fruit.

I'm going to have to practice birds a bit more ... this chickadee got a bit too elongated for the actual puffball he is. LOL

Hi Lin, just popping in to say great sketches, and I know what you mean about the puff balls, the birds are staying puffy here to keep warm, they all look so cute! Glad your Mom is improving and doing better! I have been thinking of you and her!! <3 Hugs,Patti

You are the only one who knows this little fellow is elongated. How delicate, Lin.
I also wanted to thank you for your kind words. I will keep hoping your mom is doing better every day.

He doesn't look too long to me either! I think you did a tremendous job on him. Wonderful colors and you're getting very good at those lost edges which I love!!

Elongated or not, he's gorgeous. I can almost hear him.

Gorgeous sketch! Wish we had chickadees here - I love their name!

What a treat to see a fluffy little bird this morning. I had to quit feeding mine because the seeds they dropped attracted and were feeding a quickly growing family of super mice. I wish there was a way to feed the birds without attracting rodents!
