It would have been much easier to draw the bottom one first, then start the second one where he left off, but no, I drew the top one first, then had to fit in the others on down the page. Good old hind sight. Played with their eyes a bit, looking this way and that. The background just looks sort of blah in the picture, but it's a pale orange with a few spots, prepared a few weeks ago during a painting binge on the kitchen table.

parrots in the park
I took the dog to the dog park today, just ahead of yet more rain. While she dashed around, I drew in my journal. My drawing skills are really lame, so I drew something I knew I wouldn't get too frustrated with - birds. Several of them, stacked on one another, and colored in fantasy shades with colored pencils. Once I got home, I went over the colors with my hotsy totsy Copics to smooth out the pencil marks and shade them a bit. Very enjoyable hour except for the dog drool on the way home.
