I sketched this with just graphite. Then went back in with ink and worked it so it had stronger lines. I need to get a thinner ink pen for this. (It's a calla lily Jerry bought for photography purposes - I only get flowers if he can use them for photography! ha ha).
Then did a little one this morning of the birds at the feeder and on the table under the feeders. A papa cardinal and his baby...he was so protective of her and fed her at times. It's always a pleasure when the smaller birds get to feast a while without being interrupted and frightened by the many grackles who sometimes take over the place.
It's pretty pale because it's just graphite.
