After a long absence I am returning to blogging. My mother was ill for a long time and passed away in February. My computer gave me all sorts of trouble and I am now using a brand new Mac Book Pro. It has no printer and scanner, so I took a photo of this sketch using PhotoBooth and uploading it as a photo. I had to crop my finders out of the left hand side. I took the photo using natural light by the window, but there is still a shadow. I think that taking a good photo will take a little practice. I also notice that while I've been away, Blogger has changed quite a bit, too.
It's like starting over with everything.
This sketch is of a Bohemian Waxwing. There was a whole flock of them in the crabapple tree on my way home from work the other day. I think I want to continue to work on this sketch and refine it a bit. I used my new Derwent Inktense pencils which are really nice.
