A winter tradition

Every winter we feed lots of birds. I have two feeders with black sunflower seeds, one suet feeder, and a hummingbird feeder and they are busy all the time. I used pastel pencils and tan paper on this one. The cone in the sketch is a baffle to keep the squirrels out of the feeder.

  1. I love the concept of feeding the birds being a wintertime tradition--a beautiful gesture, to go with a beautiful sketch. The posture of the birds is so lively and true to life here. And you did an awesome job shading the squirrel-guard! Lovely.

  2. Thanks, next I have to capture those squirrels with my pencil.
