Watchful Redwinged Blackbird ~ xPost Animals/Wildlife


9x5.75 India ink and watercolor on old book text done today, using a chopstick for the sketch. This watchful blackbird sits atop a cattail or bulrush in a wet marshland area, their favored habitat. My photo ref taken in New Mexico.
C&C welcome

Very nice! Chopsticks, huh? I made some cane reed pens last year, so why not chopsticks I certainly like the outcome!

like it! and love drawing with sticks/twigs

I've never tried chopsticks but twigs from trees/bushes and those coffee stirrers from cafes are good too

Thanks Lamar and Vivien! Yes, any type stick, even broken ones from trees work well.
