BABY BIRD SKETCH IN INK


How exciting to find baby birds in a small tree next to the house this week!   I am pretty sure it is robin babies.  This one was all wild-hair pretty, and full of curiosity...I peeked into the nest, took a few pictures, and then left really fast, because the mama was getting very vocal in the next tree.  I guessed at the position of the legs with the drawing, and used sepia pens and a few grey ink pens for darker areas.  Baby birds make me feel a bit better about life in general...how do you people in the city get your connection to Mother Earth?
