Imaginary Trip to England - European Robins


Imaginary Trip to England - European Robins
Originally uploaded by csgebhart

I sketched these birds and nest with paint and brush only - no pencil, no eraser. I've never done that before, so it sounded pretty scary to me when I learned that was what our assignment was! And we were to spend NO MORE than 5 minutes per bird. We were going after a likeness only, no details. It was great fun - I really enjoyed doing these little sketches.

I'll have to do more - maybe of a puppy and/or kitten in a few weeks. We should be picking up our puppy from the breeder around May 21st. And we've chosen our kitten from the kitten rescue - we'll get him right after we get home with our puppy. I can't wait!

Cheryl--I love your robins. What a fun assignment, and you did a great job.

I'm so jealous--you get a new puppy and a new kitten! What kind of puppy?

Your England paintings are super! Of course, I'm partial to the robin one!
