This little sparrow was a lot of fun to draw and paint!
I was drawn to his slightly grouchy expression which I managed to photograph through the window of our home. He warily watched me as he sat guarding his family’s nest from the top of a birch birdhouse hanging on our front porch.
The initial drawing was done with a Pigma Micron pen on Winsor & Newton watercolor marker paper. Then I used Winsor & Newton Watercolor Markers and a waterbrush to add colored washes.
