This is the first drawing I’ve done that I like. It’s not perfect — if perfect is possible — but it looks pretty close to a real Bluebird and for once, it’s got a shape. It doesn’t look flat. I didn’t get the color precisely either, but I’m not sure anyone but nature could create such a wonderful color of blue.
I was thinking of adding some leaves to the branch, but I was afraid I’d ruin it, so I quit while I was ahead. I also need to practice drawing feet!
