A Bathing Beauty

I finished my Blue Jay in watercolor yesterday from my sketch:

I added watercolor and some watercolor pencils to finish it!  Here is a before and after photo:

Thanks again Kathy for giving me permission to use such an AWESOME photo as a reference!!!

Cheers Friends!  🙂

P.S.  No weird birds today… Just a Blue Jay!!!

Singing The Blues

I was once again inspired by Kathy’s photos at Backyard Bird Nerd to create this quick sketch of a Blue Jay in pencil for Draw A Bird Day – the 8th day of each month on WordPress that many of my blogging friends share with their fabulous bird drawings, paintings and photos!  🙂

I didn’t have time to paint it in watercolor tonight so I’m singing the blues!!  I hope you return tomorrow to see my finished painting in my art journal!

Happy Bird Day!!!  🙂
