From My Sketchbook Pages

I did these quick pencil sketches of birds in my sketchbook at least a year ago. They sat for a long time as faint pencil drawings. When I did few nature-inspired illustrations recently, and left “white space” for room to write a letter, I remembered these bird drawings and finished them over the weekend with some light painting and ink details here and there. It’s great to have a little series of Nature Letters going now.

I really like doing these kinds of illustrations in my sketchbook, loose and whimsical with breathing space. I also love filling up a page with doodles, images and pattern, so it’s great to have a variety of ideas floating around to experiment with.
