Common “Redpoll” – 2

I haven’t drawn a bird for “Draw A Bird” day in awhile… so yesterday I decided to give it a try in my Alphabet Journal:

The letter “R” is for (Common) Redpoll:


I sketched my bird in pencil, added Micron pen in brown and black ink, color pencils and white gel pen.  It was a good way to de-stress from my day! 😉

I painted this bird in a more whimsical style that you can find, here from 2016.

What a great little red hat this bird wears!

Cheers!  🙂

P.S. I almost didn’t create a post for today because my hubby and I were busy moving his mother into a retirement home so she could receive more care.  But I needed time to unwind so this was my way to relax!  Phew! 😯

    • Glad you like my bird, Jodi! 😃 And the abstract is something I did last year with inks. I will find it and link it for you. 💙 Change is always difficult. I hope she will get the care she needs and today will be a better day for her. Hubby got up early and went and had breakfast with her this morning. I thought that was really nice of him to do! ❤️

  4. Beautiful Jill! What is a white gel pan? It sounds like something I need! Will it cover a misplaced line? I know you both will be relieved that your MIL will be well cared for.

    • Thanks Jenna! My favorite white gel pen is a Uniball Signo. You can find it on Amazon. And yes, it is great tool to have! 😄 Yes, I think once she gets settled things will be better. Change is never easy especially as we get older. ❤️


  5. R is for really busy! Hope your mom in law settles easily into her new place. Love your Red poll Jill.
