A few months ago, my grandmother unearthed a children’s story she’d written over 20 years ago about a young boy. She asked me to illustrate the cover. I agreed but have been anxious about it ever since – I haven’t done a lot of watercolor painting, and I also hadn’t been drawing many people lately (well, I haven’t been drawing much at all lately, period). I’m a bit more comfortable drawing animals.
I’m not even sure how long it’s been since I’ve done any gesture drawings, but they’re always good practice, & always a good thing to do when I don’t have a ton of time!
Just in time for Draw a Bird Day, here is my own contribution – a cardinal in ink. Also, my 100th post! Another milestone after just having reached my 1 year blog anniversary.
