Tutorwood Art -Watercolor Grey Butcher Bird

I’m enjoying the downtime of Easter and have been working on improving and further exploring my drawing and sketching skills.

Earlier this year I discovered a brilliant American artist Juliette Aristides, and I’ve been working through one of her excellent books, “Beginning Drawing Atelier.”

The lessons have empowered me with the skills to look at how I draw in a new way and not to get too tied up in planning a picture – just get on with it and draw the picture.

The image I’m posting here is another view of the young Grey Butcherbird which paid us a visit a few days ago. The last post was a coloured pencil sketch, this one is in watercolour pencil.

I hope you like it.

Cheers for now


Tutorwood Art – Grey Butcherbird

We had a young Grey Butcherbird come and visit us yesterday while we were gardening. I snapped a couple of shots on my phone and spent a few hours this morning working up a rough coloured pencil sketch.

For my first attempt at sketching birds, I’m happy with the result

Anyway, I hope you like them.
