Blue Jay Way

Blue Jay, 11.25.16

Happy 2017! I failed at keeping up a regular drawing habit in 2016 – needless to say, this blog suffered as well. However, new years = new beginnings, and thus, I present to all of you one of my goals this year: to draw enough this year to update this blog, at minimum, once a week. I give myself some leeway for vacations, but I must update Scribble Fiend at least 52 times this year, and preferably spread out throughout the entire year. How’s that for a goal?

So, for my first post of the year, I am actually sharing something I did about a month or so ago of a blue jay in watercolor and ink.

I’d like to get into watercolor more, but it’s something I struggle with. There are some parts of this one that I can appreciate (this was mostly me just experimenting), like some of the different values in blue, but I also am not super pleased with the drawing, so I guess that didn’t help. I’m also not sure if I’m adding too much detail in ink, or if I should actually try adding more.

Anyway, I’m going to try really hard sticking to this goal for 2017! Hope you’re all having a good new year so far!

  1. Hey, great to see you back! I’d fallen off the blogging train myself (well, I posted drawings to the blog but I didn’t read any blogs and was just generally swamped). Love your blue jay and I look forward to your posts this year!
