12:30 AM Quickie Bird

I just couldn't settle down last night so I got up and painted another bird. It took maybe 15 minutes or so. Then I guess I had "scratched the itch" that was keeping me from settling down so then I went on back to bed. I have this  book coloring book  and I try to sketch the birds out by had without tracing . It is a skill that needs practice so I try to look at something and draw it.

Such a beautiful bird. I wish I could create something like this at 12:30 a.m. I'd love to see a handful of your birds lined up on a wire or branch! hint, hint :)

Great way to count "sheep?" while you can't sleep. This little birdie is very cute and colorful. Happy painting...

Beautiful bird Martha,thats what I have been trying to do more is to sketch what I see,I think the more practice the better.Although it doesnt seem like you need to much practice with your birds.

Its a beautiful bird! I have a friend who is taking a class based on the book drawing on the right side of the brain. Second week was all about drawing what you see, not what you think you should see.
