I think this is a wren--I found the picture in O magazine. I prefer to draw plant life, mainly because it's more forgiving, but while I'm in colored-pencil drawing class, with Christina Baltaylon, I thought I'd better take advantage and draw a variety of subjects.
I need to draw another bird, so I can correct the things I don't like about this drawing! We just started our second ten-week session at the Creative Arts Group, in Sierra Madre. We're drawing a succulent plant, beginning with realistic style, then moving to more abstract.
I'm sure this image will turn up in one of my collages.
