Sketching Egrets

These aren't all egret sketches, but most of them are.  I love sketching both egrets and herons..... so elegant, so many poses.
There were sketched last fall and early winter.  I just haven't found the time to post them.  


  1. They are so beautiful and graceful and you have captured those qualities perfectly!

  2. This is a wonderful blog! Your heron sketches really capture their form and elegance. I've really enjoyed seeing the diversity of artists' work here.

    I cannot figure out how to follow this blog, though. When I go through the steps to "follow via email," I end up with a screen that tells me that function isn't enabled. I don't have the other accounts (Yahoo etc) that are offered as options for following.

    Would it be possible for one of the moderators to let me know how to follow the blog, other than signing up for yet another service? I'd really like to keep up with the artists' work here. You could either reply to this post, or send me a message using the "About" link on my own blog,

    Thank you,

    1. Hi Trileigh...there's a "follow by email" option in the sidebar at right give that a try!

    2. Thanks so much for your reply, Kate! but as I noted above, it seems to lead to a dead end. I've tried it twice just in case, but I still get the same problem.

      Hmm, maybe I'll try it using a different computer and browser, though - will let you know if that helps.

    3. I wish I could help! It worked for me, that's all I know.

  3. Oh, my, I love the one against the dark background. Your sketches are always so fresh, Elva!

  4. Beautiful sketches!, I love the simplicity and elegance of your ink sketches.
