This little hummingbird posed outside our dining room window long enough to get most of this sketch done. Two days later, as I was adding pear tree branches, it returned to the same spot on the apple tree--just long for me to see that I didn't get its profile quite right.
On the day after Christmas, I sketched amidst the clutter, reflecting on good memories of the holiday. (Wouldn't it be nice in real life if we could just crop out wrappings and extra clutter?)
I hope you all have some moments of serenity and peace and a time for a sketch or two.
