The bird drawing continues! I started this colored pencil drawing of a Northern Cardinal yesterday using this photograph on Instagram as the source image. I was really drawn to this photo because the cardinal is looking straight at the camera – what an amazing shot! When I showed the drawing to my partner yesterday, he said, “This bird is staring straight into my soul.” Haha!
I am happy to report that, unlike last time, I didn’t trace the outline of the bird beforehand. It is all free-handed. It’s not perfect, but it’s not too bad either!
More progress to come next weekend, hopefully!
