Cactus Wren


Cactus Wren, another quick study from last week’s trip to the Kern River Valley.


Black-throated Sparrow


Black-throated Sparrow—one of the MANY great birds we saw on our tour of the Kern River Valley this past week. This portrait was done quickly in No.2 pencil based on a photo from one of the attendees. I gave myself about 15 minutes to work on this. Perhaps it will turn into a color portrait later, but for now, I’m happy to be drawing again.
