Draw a Bird Day Roundup for January 2016
Nina has designed a lovely banner for our roundup this month. Everyone started off the year with a lot of energy, because the participants were overflowing! I’ve also included some of the birds I saw from blogs I visited in the last month.
First, I want to mention A-Wing and A-Way, the bird blog that informed us about the yearly draw-a-bird day. And Laura, at Create Art Everyday, who started the monthly posts, and has passed it to Nina and me, as her life is too hectic at the moment.
Laura has done several birds already this year for her “100 Faces” project. Her contribution on the 8th was a baby robin.
Jodi at Life in Between also contributed a sparrow.
Lance at Weisser Water Colors painted chickadees in the snow.
Also in a seasonal mood, Rachel Murphree Watercolors did bluebird ornaments.
And from Eileen at My Creative Resolution, some penguins.
Seabirds also made appearances. Kirk at (the occasional) Dumb Sketch with a Duluth ivory gull:
Carol’s Creative Papers with an osprey:
Susan Feniak’s Art contributed killdeer chicks:
Snehal Kank painted a kingfisher:
and Teresa at One Good Thing drew a cape wagtail feeding a cuckoo chick.
Owls showed up too. A beauty from Myriam at Mrs Bytes:
Annerose Georgeson painted colorful owls in December.
And Corinne Maakt has been exploring animals, real and imaginary, an owl being one of them.
Also several hummingbirds. From Carol J Forrester:
and Dream of the Scribble Fiend.
Cavepainter of Too Much White Paper contributed a zinaida dove, inspired by Audubon’s work.
Jill ‘s Art Journal was as taken by the painted bunting as the birdwatchers in Brooklyn were.
Brushes and Papers frequently includes birds in her lovely brush paintings.
Sharon Mann produced a lovely duet:
And speaking of yellow birds, Charlie O at Doodlewash managed to keep to both the bird theme, and his January journey through his childhood toys.
Cynthia at Sand Salt Moon has been into flowers recently, but she managed a chicken in this December scene:
Jean at Drawn In also placed her bird in a landscape.
And Rija Yoo just posted another wonderful imaginary being: a bird person.
and I did robins. Nina did our beautiful banner above.
If I forgot anyone, my apologies! you can add your link in the comments section, and I’ll update the post.
Also, I can’t leave without urging you to visit Backyard Bird Nerd. Kathy takes the most wonderful photos not only of birds, but of all the visitors to her backyard.
Thanks again to one and all.
