bird sketchesPainting and sketching birds is a challenge because they are moving all the time. The Teal, Pintail and Shoveler here up-ended were bobbing up and down all the time. The good bit is that they repeat the same move over and over again, almost as often as you look down at your drawing pad.

These sketches all done using watercolour pencils and smudged with water from a brush pen.
