The Illustration Friday theme is “outside,” and right outside my front door daffodils are blooming.

Daffodills 3

There are lots of ducks and geese at the pond at the little neighborhood park.  Last week we saw a great blue heron by the edge of the water, which was pretty amazing. Sometimes the geese will “pose,” but most of the time I find myself watching the little kids at the park.  They’re *so* delighted by the geese and ducks! Outside 1

I’m looking forward to seeing the baby geese and ducklings. They should be showing up any day now…

Both pictures were drawn with a Uniball Vision Exact (best pen *ever*) in a Strathmore bound  5.5 x 8.5 sketchbook with toned paper.  (The paper’s grey; I don’t know why it always scans as tan.) The color in the top picture is courtesy of Nouvel Carre pastels.
