A Bit of Black

Another bird! This mockingbird drawing was lightly sketched with graphite and finished with colored pencil. Colored pencil is nice for the detail it allows, but fairly time consuming to lay down the pigment.

This little (5×7) drawing has only a limited color range – blues, grays, a little yellow and a bit of black.

I’m finding these birds to be extremly enjoyable so have started more for watercolor sketches. We’ll see how those go.
