House Sparrows

sketchook 2014-01-11-1

You’d think the deathly cold temperatures of the last few weeks would have driven the birds to the feeder, but my yard has been almost entirely empty since the new year.  A milder spell this weekend finally brought back my usual flock of House Sparrows. Last month’s ice storm took down one of the branches on my lonely willow tree, and the birds seemed to appreciate the extra ground cover.

Dragon (Watercolour)

Another dragon.  Canson makes a pretty great mixed media sketchbook — a nice surface for pencils that erases well, while just heavy enough to accept washes.

Dragons

Some dragon designs for a new project I’ve started.  Still deciding whether I want to go digital or traditional for this one.  Flexibility versus comfort, same old battle.
