March 2009 Virtual Sketch Date: Two Birds and a Feeder

March 2009 Virtual Sketch Date
Watercolor, Micron 02 pigment pen

This month's Virtual Sketch Date was fun — I saw two birds with great attitude!

Please click here if you'd like to see the reference photo.

And here are the drawings and paintings from artists around the world on the VSD flickr site. It is always a treat to see the different interpretations people create from one photograph.

This is such an enjoyable monthly challenge. I encourage anybody who is interested to just jump right in and give it a go! Many thanks to VSD admins Rose, Jeanette and Stacy for making this challenge possible.

your birds are funny, and apparently the left one is more happy than the other!
