American Robins in Bath Mode
After yesterday’s rain there are plenty of birds taking baths in puddles, in particular one outside my window at work.
I tried to get a sense of the bustle and officiousness of these robins in a colored pencil sketch, above; it didn’t really get it. So I tried a portrait.
Carried on with watercolor and it’s getting closer… after their baths they sit and preen in a tree and chatter away, flicking their tails and feathers in unison…
