Robin Red Breast
5.5" x 7" gray Strathmore paper, Schaefer cartridge pen, watercolor paints, white colored pencil. Jan. 21, 2013.
I copied this from an artist on Nature Sketchbook blog, hers was much prettier, I liked her background better. It looked simple enough to try, yea right! I put mine on gray Strathmore paper, and used watercolor paints. The ink was NOT waterproof and ran when I got it wet, but it added nice gray shading to the wings and branch. I do like the gray paper though.
