birds around the world; sketches of birds


robin 2014 001


A few of my quick little sketches, usually done in the car as my husband, Bruce, takes endless – oh, endless!! – photos.  I have a tiny water-colour box and a sketch pad almost always with me.  Because the bird moves, my sketches are always just that – sketches.
