Back to Basics

July 13th, 2009

hummingbirdWe’re going through some severe shake ups at my day job so I may not be able to post regularly again for a while.  It may be more of the mobile phone uploads.  Today, however, I thought I’d post this sketch that I did this weekend.  A friend of mine on facebook asked me to draw a hummingbird for her.

Ball point pen on Canson, 65# recycled paper, 9×12.

    I love hummingbirds and you have done an excellent job! Hope all goes well at work and that you get time to do a drawing. Chin up!

    Lovely sketch – the foreshortening is impressive!
    Hope the work thing pans out OK – and that you are soon back to your regular postings.

    This drawing really shows your growth. The detail is very nice. I am going to add this to my collection.

    That is a great drawing. I agree you really captured the foreshortening (not easy) I have noticed over the past few months your drawings are getting more and more detailed.
