Watercolor Markers: “Watchful Papa”


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.
