Tufted Titmouse - Pen, Ink and Wash

Another of our visitors at the bird feeder station...........the tufted titmouse.

This was done using the Tombow Dual Marker in my Daler Rowney sketchbook................some marks placed directly on the paper surface using the marker pen with the remaining done with round brush dipped in pools of watered down ink.  The marks that were directly placed on paper were washed over with a damp or wet brush to make the ink spread.



What captured my attention with this particular one was the facial expression.  With its markings, it looks like it's frowning.

Love the expression, though! Great job - I really like the softness the washes add.

I meant to add where I truly love this technique with nature and other subjects. The Tombow pen has become one of my favorite tools for sketching.
