Cute Little Muskrat

I saw a family of muskrats having dinner on the shores of the pond at Greenfield Village. I had heard about muskrats living there, but it's the first time I ever saw them.

Bun Bun

I've got a wild little bunny living in my backyard. He is super cute, and I've been calling him "bun bun" for some reason. I thought I would try to draw some wild bunnies.

Swan Sketch

So I went on vacation to Lake Michigan this week with the hope of spending some time sketching seagulls. My plans were thwarted thought by the heat wave, humidity and plain lack of seagulls. I only saw two in the distance one time. I did see some swifts, sparrows, crows and a family of swans.

Michigan Drawings

I found this cute bear with a fish in one of my sketchbooks. I spotted him on a billboard while on vacation up north. This week, I'm on vacation to Lake Michigan. Hopefully I will get some sketching done and I will find some new cute birds and animals to draw.

Pussy Willows

I've been working on improving my field sketching outdoors, like trying to hold my sketchbook more stable and getting used to drawing while standing. I tackled these pussy willows the other day.

I'm going to Lake Michigan for vacation next week and I thought I would get some seagull practice done beforehand.

House Sparrows

I've been watching the house sparrows at my suet feeder in my backyard and I decided to try to sketch a couple of them.

Bird Sketches

On rainy days, I've been using my Cat Sitter DVD (which is video footage of wild birds for my cat to watch, but he doesn't) to work on my field sketching of birds. Here are some of my sketches.
