Getting Back In The Swing Of Things

I’ve been a bit under the weather over the past couple of weeks and therefore more focused on getting back to being healthy rather than drawing. But fortunately over the past two days I’ve been feeling better and was able to get started on a new ACEO. Gracing my drawing board today is a base sketch of an egret with cattails that I found to be a bit cute in a peculiar kinda way. A little tidbit I learned about egrets is that they are not the same as cranes, which is what I thought. Actually they’re more so a type of heron, which is another bird I thought was the same as a crane. In actuality herons and cranes are two distinct birds. I won’t get into the differences between the two but if you look at the pictures below maybe you can spot some of them.  As the saying goes, you learn something new each day. 🙂

  1. Use to have a blue heron visit the pond near where I use to live all summer. It eould stand still as a statue for hours then suddenly plunge its head in the water. “Hunting frogs…or fish”my husband told me. Beautiful birds but real ling and lanky when rising to fly.
