When you have little Blue Tits flying in and out of the bird box right outside your window (all those caterpillars they’ve fed to their chicks!), it made sense that I should try and draw one (emphasis on the ‘try’ here!).
Unlike most drawing I didn’t start with the birds eye (I know, what’s wrong with me?!) but instead started with it’s beak, it just seemed to make more sense while I was drawing. I then drew the eye before drawing the outline of the bird.
I then went about shading, something I’m not too happy about. Especially the left hand side of the bird or right hand side as you look at it (all these hands are so confusing!), it just seems to deform the bird somehow.
But I think overall it’s an ‘okay’ drawing.
I don’t know if you’ve tried taking a photo of a Blue Tit going in and out of it’s house to feed it’s chicks, but I can assure you, it’s not easy! They’re speedy little things! My rather poor attempt is shown below.
That’s all for today folks,
Over and out,
