We worked in a mid-week FaceTime SketchTime session this last week because... well just because. Some weeks call for it.
While my Sister created bold, arresting, birds with colorful plumage, I did a study of the Quiscalus Quiscula family. More commonly known as the grackle.
Followed by the geranium cutting I have now potted in dirt, and then a practice sketch of Annette.
Now that I have captured the grackle I am infused with confidence to tackle other birds. Maybe a heron, or a snub-nosed bobwhite, or some such like that.
It is just this kind of thinking that has gotten me into trouble in the past. Happily there are no penalties for trouble of the artistic kind.
