The Parasitic Jaeger colored pencil portrait in done. That completes all of the California representatives of the Stercorariidae family for my catalog, unless I want to start again from the beginning… which I probably do.
Managed to redraw the Parasitic Jaeger, hopefully correcting some of the errors from first (two) studies… I laid in some color. Next all the details. Unless I decide to start all over… Which has happened more than once.
First pass at the Parasitic Jaeger. I can already see issues with the proportions of the bird, so that will be the first challenge when I redraw the bird.
Gray Catbird, done.
I made some progress on the Gray Catbird portrait tonight. Redrawn, refined and most colors in place. Another night, and it should be done.
Starting on a new portrait from Michigan and Massachusetts—Gray Catbird. It’s one of our favorites from the trip, despite the fact that it is not very colorful. It’s a simple formula of flat iron gray, black and a small amount of rufous… but pretty damn cool regardless. I’ll add color after I refine the composition.
