Tits

This is a Coal Tit which I painted from a photograph.  We don’t actually get them around here.  I borrowed a book called Drawing and Painting Birds by Tim Wooton from the library and it is great.  It is not like those crappy “how to draw a cat” type books that say draw a circle then another one and a triangle…there it’s a cat.  This book is all about bird anatomy, differences between species, adaptations to environments etc etc.  The other book I want to check out is Laws Guide to Drawing Birds which looks good too.

I drew this in pencil then painted it with watercolor.  The burnt sienna background came out crappy and sort of ruined it a bit.
