American Robin...


I love to sketch~
Instead of sitting down to read a good book... I sketch!
While I wait at appointments or wait to pick up family... I sketch!


However...
I LOVE to add color!


White petals & white paper... 
Adding a soft wash to push the background back~


When I would roam about as a child I always had string in my pocket.
Someday I will share the many things I did with my string!


Pencil details~

Our baby Robins have been watching the flowers take shape.
Patiently waiting~
They're very excited to be getting color soon!

Thank you for stopping by!
Hope you're having a wonderful day~
