One of the great things about living in a new place is new wildlife. I've been lucky enough to get some fantastic photos lately. Which have provided even greater references to draw from. I now fully appreciate my college professors telling me over and over to take your own photos to draw from.
This sparrow below was taken at the Baylands. I've blogged about it a little on the other one, but it's this cool nature preserve here that has a lot of neat bird life. These birds are cute and tiny and everywhere and have the prettiest little song. I've been exploring with watercolors lately and this was the first attempt. Enjoy!
