Illustration Friday – Wheel of Fortune

WheelofFortuneSo – the drawing in this post started off as my offering for the monthly Draw-a-Bird Day, which is the 8th of every month. Ms. Laura over at Create Art Everyday had started the tradition of celebrating Draw-a-Bird Day monthly and I was so proud of myself for finally getting it together to not only remember it, but to begin a drawing ahead of schedule. I decided to draw a cormorant, inspired by this post at A-Wing and A-Way (who knew that so many great artists kept pet birds?). And then the drawing sort of took on a life of its own…I kept working on it and working on it…Once I was done, I decided it needed only a title to complete it. Drawing (ink and colored pencil on paper) and composition by me. Have a great Friday!
