sparrows1The weather has been so awful recently. Rain, wind and no sunlight.sparrows2 I’ve been keeping myself busy with drawing the tree and house sparrows that congregate on the hawthorn bush right outside my studio door (they sit there and preen  and chatter, before they swoop down and steal all my chicken’s food).

I don’t usually attempt to draw the smaller passerines – anything smaller that a blackbird usually moves too quickly – but the sparrows are there all the time, so there is nearly always a ‘new model’ on hand. I’m going to make it my mission to really keep these going and see where it takes me. sparrows3
