Our Snow Birds Have Returned

Using my Pilot Prera with Lexington Gray ink, I sketched this snow bird representing the fact they have returned for the season.

Here are the steps I took with the final after taking some watercolor to darken the black areas and to tone down the sharp contrast between ink strokes.

Moleskine Watercolor Sketchbook

W&N Watercolors:  Cobalt Blue, Bt Umber and touch of Raw Sienna for snow shadows and Lunar Black.

Also touched up the bottom of the bird with a Uniball White Gel pen.
