Illustration Friday – The Tower

TheTowerWell, this is my second entry for the Draw-A-Bird Day that is on the 8th of every month. Clearly I don’t do well with deadlines! I chose a Western Grebe this month. The scene is sadly one I personally witnessed not long ago on the beach. I see multiple groups of volunteers regularly cleaning this stretch of beach, which is in a state reserve, bags full of trash – and yet more debris keeps coming every day. I decided to keep my theme of the major arcana – perhaps I will wind up with a tarot deck of Draw-A-Bird Day art! Drawing (colored pencil and pen on paper) and composition by me. If you’d like to see my first entry for Draw-A-Bird Day, click here. Ms. Laura of the fabulous Create Art Everyday blog is the curator of Draw-A-Bird Day, check it out and join in (even if you are chronically late like me).



    1. Thank you, Susi! It’s encouraging to hear folks think it’s a good idea to keep the series going! Thank you for your recent post on “writing and creative resources” – there were some gems in there!


    1. Thank you, Sheldon! There were times I was definitely wishing for a colored pencil called “beach sand” – but they don’t seem to make that one! 🙂


    1. Thank you! It was hard to see the bird like that – it would sit with it’s leg out, but if anyone got close it would flap and frantically hobble away. So I don’t know what happened to it, but can guess, of course. I hope I persevere to make a whole deck!

    1. Thank you, Laura! Well, I have high ambitions of getting these drawings done on time – but such discipline does not seem to extend to my art! I am glad that late assignments are accepted 😉 It is always my pleasure to plug awesome blogs like yours. Happy Holidays to you too!
