Rainy days

Poor soaked birds are flocking to the feeders on the back porch. I counted more than 20 finches six cardinals 2-4 doves chickadees wrens and titmice plus a blue jay or two. I could tell how many of they wore name tags. lol.

Drawn in a small alpha stillman and birn with an XF sepia pitt pen which barely smears at all despite my efforts.

Poor soaked finches out the den door

I couldn’t resist coloring the Cardinals for just a tiny pop of color. They are such gorgeous birds especially when they fluff up to stay warm on cold wet days. I colored them with watercolor pencils.

One more thing

About the eye brow. It was flat. She has great eyebrows with arches not flat ones. Now they are arched.

So yesterday the tweaks I made. More hair on the front of her Head. Pushed her lower lip and chin back. Her upper lip is slightly longer. Heavier shadow under nose.

A chin line on her neck and a neck line on her shoulders.

Last but not least I narrowed her bottom hand. It was too wide. Might still be a bit too wide but she’s done.

Five minutes

and the other pile of gesture sketches I didn’t post from last week.

One minute

Three minutes

And the other five minute
