Hi there how are you?
Christmas is almost here, are you ready? I’m almost there but we still haven’t made any mince pies and Christmas can’t start without them so tomorrow I’m going to have to get my finger out!
I’ve been drawing robins in my sketchbook this week. I try to draw and paint robins every year but usually the end up looking a little “special”. I tried again this year and they didn’t look too bad, (for me that is).
Since they came out so well I painted some little robins on watercolour paper placed them onto some card bases. They’re not amazing but very much better than usual so I’m quite pleased with them.
Sorry the lighting is a bit weird the sun was quite low in the sky; it makes everything yellow and elongates the shadows.
This is the robin I decided to use for the cards. It’s nice to see there was a little improvement from last year; maybe the practice is paying off.
I’ve made two more little sketchy robins into a pattern just to see how it would look. If anybody would like to use it for their own personal use please do, just click on the image, click again to enlarge, right click and save the image.
If you’re on mobile devices I have no idea how to do that sorry.
Happy Christmas every one and whether you’re celebrating or not I wish you all love, peace and joy.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Till next time, have fun x
