great tit blue tit sketchA flurry of birds on the bird feeder on the patio of my sister's house provided endless bird sketching opportunities - sparrows, blue and great tits, dunnock, chaffinch (on the ground) and, briefly, a male great spotted woodpecker. They live out in the country so there are birds everywhere.

If you are sketching birds "from life" as it were, you need to be hands free, as shown here on the second photograph. You can see my sketchbook on the worktop showing the sketch shown in the top photo.
