My kids finished making bird feeders for our new little "backyard" (the deck facing the wetlands) in Corvallis and after a couple days of waiting, the little birds have finally found them!
I had a lovely morning of sketching these adorable chickadees and nuthatches. I often use my little sketches that help define the shapes and motions of the birds with birding books that help me get the bird markings semi-accurate in order to bring the birds to my paintings (I obviously don't use my photographs!). The paintings of these latest drawing are sure to follow soon!
