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