drawing birds



Three sketchbook pages, lesson 1 of an online class in drawing birds in colored pencil with Val Webb.
I've been wanting to draw birds for quite a while, especially since I live on a major flyway for migrating birds, at the foot of the Delaware Bay: it seems a shame to not take advantage of such serendipity.
I'm also taking another class with Val, watercolor lettering, and I'm enjoying both and learning a lot. Val's lessons--in the form of videos and print-outs--are great; I feel like I'm learning ... which is a great feeling!

Love the bird drawings. I love birds too, and wanted at one point to put them in every painting. Sounds like a super course.

XOXO Barbara

It sounds fun Laura! I love your sketches and recognize many of these birds.

These are wonderful! Makes me wish I was in that class but just don't have the time (yes, it's just an excuse, I know!).

Great pages of practice!
For me birds are one of the most beautiful subject for drawing and painting (but not in the morning when I get out to see my newly washed auto parked under the tree for the night))
