Many worlds I’ve come since I first left home

Chestnut-Sided Warbler

Chestnut-Sided Warbler

Tonight I finished the pen work for my collection of 30 different Warbler species. I’ll color them in this week and in a perfect world I’ll share them with you here in full color by next weekend.

This project has helped me learn  a lot about observation, patience, drawing techniques, and myself.

The Bay-Breasted warbler was the last one I finished tonight, making it the most recent bird I’ve drawn.

This acrylic painting is one I’ve been carrying around with me from Illinois. I painted it 8 years ago in my parents basement on scrap wood from my Dad’s wood shop.

My birds have changed over the years, gaining some kind of clarity. At the very least they’re not hunchbacked and worried looking.

 

Thanks for tuning in folks, more on birds when we come back…
