“Belize Gull” Draw a bird day


A Belize Gull.  They look the same as any other Gull! This one posed for me so I knew I had to paint him.
This can be my #WorldWatercolorGroup contribution for the day too.

#Draw A Bird Day and #NatureDoodlewash

Blue Heron  June 8th  Its time for #Draw A Bird Day again so I am combining it with #NatureDoodlewash for the day.  The Blue Heron speaks for himself.  An elegant and normally shy elusive bird this one liked to visit us while at our marina in Sicamous a couple of summers ago.  I have been meaning to do his portrait ever since.

This #Draw A Bird Day and #NatureDoodlewash  is on Strathmore watercolor paper and painted with Holbein Artists’ Water Color.  Original art by Susan Feniak


Happy Mothers Day and Draw A Bird Day

Happy Mothers Day to all!  As it so happens it is the 8th day of the month which means Draw A Bird Day as well.  My present to you on Mothers Day and Draw A Bird Day is my new painting, “Coming In For A Landing”.  The chickadees are at the feeder enjoying their seed or trying to.  Flowers, blossoms and spring greenery abound.   My hope is you all enjoy this special day.  Hugs, Susan

April 8th  Today instead of doing a National Day I have drawn a bird for Draw A Bird Day.  This youngster is a juvenile Steller’s Jay.  I couldn’t resist such a cute fuzzy character.  (I plucked the imagine from the internet and have no idea who to give credit to for the photo.)  Its been a busy week here at my work desk and easel.  Time for a breather.  Have yourselves a grand weekend.  I am looking forward to seeing all the birdie drawings and posts from my WP friends.  Cheers, Susan
