A Flash of Blue

August 18, 2008 | By | 8 Replies More

This is a quick drawing from yesterday. After getting the initial sketch down and starting to put in the dark eyes, beak and feathers with graphite, I wanted more. He is a Blue Jay after all. So, I added pastel chalks and was much happier.
This is one of a very few bird drawings I’ve done and it was very enjoyable. Maybe there are more in my future!
