Draw A Bird Day, April 2019

Each year we look forward to the return of our hummingbirds sometime this month, hopefully within the next week or two. I started putting out nectar already in case we have any early arrivals, but so far we’ve not seen any.

Even though some artists draw a bird on the 8th of each month, today is the official yearly Draw A Bird Day! Do you feed your yard birds? Have you had any hummers yet?

PS: I was really happy with the loose effect achieved in this painting. Why is it that sometimes it is a struggle but other times it rolls right off the brush? I’ll take the win when I can 🙂
