I’ve been itching to draw for a while but either I was too busy and couldn’t spare the time or my hand was already sore and I didn’t want to press my luck. I’m amazed my hands still work considering what a lot of work they’ve had to do for me all these years.
My most ambitious venture was our “attack” dove. I probably should have used a larger piece of paper — or drawn the bird smaller. One way or the other, this page was a bit petite for the drawing as I drew over the tear-edge at the top. Oops.
Inspired by still having a functioning hand and realizing that I remembered how to draw (it has been a while) I decided to try a new Catbird. I was very pleased with this version. He is more flowing than my earlier attempts. It suits him as catbirds are graceful and great posers for my camera.
