Draw A Bird, October 2021

Hi Friends! This month’s bird was painted using a quick, loose method taught by Tom Shepherd of https://www.tomshepherdart.com/. It’s fun to switch up techniques and learn something new; however, I still fiddle and sometimes want to add too much detail, even though this technique does not need many details.

We’ve been enjoying the cooler weather of autumn, my favorite season. The leaves haven’t started changing here yet but should soon. What is your favorite season?

Today’s Doodlewash prompt is ocean, which immediately brings to mind our favorite family vacation spot in North Carolina along the Atlantic Ocean coastline. One of our favorite ocean activities is beach-combing and searching for fossilized sharks’ teeth, and here is where it all begins.

Although we find quite a few sharks’ teeth during our vacation, it’s been a few years since we’ve found a sizable one; you’d think it would be easy because sharks shed approximately 35,000 teeth in a lifetime! Either way, it is fun to spend time in the surf – one of my favorite places to be. 🦈 🏝

Happy December!

Hello, friends! If you are from The States, I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. Life has been crazy busy lately but it is all good.

I’m going to try to follow along with the Doodlewash December prompts each day this month, despite all the Christmas hubbub; hence, this little pinecone for December 1. I have so much fun back in my little craft corner of the living room and am grateful to get back to splashing some paint in my sketchbook. Thanks for stopping by!

Draw A Bird, April 2018

Although I tend to share a bird painting the 8th of every month, April 8 is the official Draw A Bird Day. I don’t know why I am fascinated by seagulls, but when I was fortunate to go to Hilton Head, NC in February, I spent some time observing these noisy birds. This fellow was not afraid of me getting to close and even seemed to pose.

I hope April is bringing springtime magic your way. We are still trudging through mud, literally, and buds are slow to open. However, the hummingbirds are almost here so warmer days are surely right around the corner!
