Feeder birds

It's always so much fun to see what birds visit our feeders--in this case a new one at my shed!  I've seen cardinals, sparrows, finches, and these guys...favorite winter birds!  Here, on toned paper, a titmouse, chickadee. and nuthatch...

You have to move fast to capture the overall shape, then you can add details later...including notes and borders!


  1. I just love how you used the white pen and white pencil, very effective!

  2. Thank you! I've got so much toned paper in this journal I had to do something like that to make it pop!

  3. Love this. Your strokes of the pencil are few but mighty! Wonderful eyes!

  4. Thanks, Pam, I was working very fast, and trying to keep it simple...


We'd love to hear from you, your questions, comments, observations! Please feel free to comment, feedback is important to us.
