An Old One but Worth It

It’s paint a bird day a.k.a. draw a bird day. Sooo I decided to post an old one of mine. We saw this stunning Macaw while in Antigua several years ago. Of course I had to do its portrait. Hope you have enjoyed your paint a bird day and are staying warm and dry. Cheers Susan Feniak

Draw a bird day August

August 8th and it’s draw a bird day. Why not give you two birds? The peacock is inspired from Charlie O’Shields Sketching Stuff Activity Book, Nature. I am enjoying that book. Thank you Charlie.


Show Off!

For Draw a bird day I present the Show Off! I haven’t contributed to draw a bird day for an age so thought I would this month. The 8th day of every month is for draw a bird day. Hope you have an unruffled kind of day. Cheers Susan. QoR watercolor and ink on Fabriano 5.5″ x 8.5″ paper.

#WorldWatercolorGroup #Draw a Bird Day

20161108_123054

#WorldWatercolorGroup, #Draw a Bird Day, November 8. “Mallard Duckling” original art by Susan Feniak.  The WorldWatercolorGroup prompt for today was actually  “Cappuccinos”.  Since I am not a coffee junkie I opted for Draw A Bird Day instead.  This duckling is a Mallard.  My inspiration is from a photo by Bill McMullen that I found in a Canadian Wildlife Federation calendar that arrived at our door this past week.
