"Do not fail, as you go on, to draw something every day,
for no matter how little it is, it will be well worth while,
and it will do you a world of good."
~ Cennino Cennini
I don't have a lot of time for sketching right now, but I wanted to keep up with my summer sketching series, even if it is only for a few minutes each day, because I know that even a small amount of time has a lot of great benefits. So I decided to start a project of sketching the state birds. Who knows where it will lead .... I'm really enjoying it and I can already see my drawings are going faster and getting easier.
I went to Wikipedia and got all the information I need to get started. The photos are all free to use, so there is no issue with drawing from them. I thought some of you might like to join me on this project! I am posting the photos here, but you can see them larger by going to this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._state_birds
Here are the photos and my sketches from them over the past few days.
Won't somebody join me?
