After doing pages and pages of inked drawings on tiny paper in a cheap Moleskine knock-off, I'm trying to be brave. This is much nicer paper, so smooth, so stiff. And it's much bigger (I think it's 12" x 12"?). And because it's nicer and bigger, for some reason it seems more important. And for some reason it will be a huge let-down if I choke!
I'm combining two reference pics here. I was in NC last year and took this pic off of my cousin's deck. They're delightful blue-birds. I'm probably not even half way done. There's still a background to add. I'll post another pic when I'm done.
On a side note, for all of you out there that bother to read my meanderings: thank you. Really, thank you. It's been a little surprising the interest you all show, and your comments are always surprising and so kind to me. THANK YOU.
