finally more birds

Broke out the windsor and newton half-pan watercolours for these four.  As anyone who uses watercolour will know it can be quite nerve wracking as not only is watercolour very unforgiving of mistakes but it has a mind of it's own as well.  That said I'm fairly pleased with the results.

  5. I think these are wonderful watercolor sketches! I love the complexity of the duck, and the friendliness of the tree creeper. The angle and proportions of the pipit are just right too.

  6. These are delightful. It's tough to juggle daddying and drawing, but keep fighting the good fight!
