I'm here with my homework from Day 7 of Online Card Class Clean & Simple #3. After watching Jennifer Rzasa drawing and watercolouring her image, I decided that tonight was the night for me to finally draw that bird I have been thinking about.
I have never drawn a bird before, not really, not where I actually tried to make the bird look like a particular type of bird... but on the week-end I was looking at the art of Geninne, and in particular her birds, and I was overcome by the desire to draw and watercolour a bird. So, tonight, after Jen inspired me, I looked up photos of robins, wrens, and jays and decided to draw a robin redbreast. I looked at about three different photos of the birds to figure out the colour variations, and the various shapes in different positions and then gave it a go.
The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Fine Feathers. The bird was painted using Derwent Inktense pencils and a water brush.
I know it isn't perfect. It is a first try, after all. But I will admit to being so excited and encouraged by this first version that I just might try drawing and painting some more! I'm not sure I can replicate this to make a set and Jen suggested. I'm pretty happy that I even made one, lol!
Such a lovely card Michelle! Well done. Just love it.
Are you kidding me?!! At first glance, I wondered what lovely stamp you used for the bird - it looks awesome, Michelle! Can't believe you drew that! It's so beautiful! You should definitely draw more! :)
It looks perfect to me!
That is a beautiful bird, I also thought it was a stamp first.
You did a wonderful job! Lovely card.
Can't believe that you have never drawn a bird before! It's fabulous - shape, shading, everything! You have talent and should definitely make some time to draw/paint more!
Wow! I think it looks amazing!
the colors and the image and the sentiment all are so cohesive, artistic and just plain fantastic!
For the first bird you ever tried to draw, you did great!!! Very impressive. A very nice card.
Terrific robin - I'd be thrilled if I could draw this well! Your lines are great and the shadow is the perfect finishing touch.
It is beautiful, and very professional looking!

Wow, Michelle! It's impossible to believe that you just sat down and drew this and colored it right off the bat!
