Morning Dove Waiting His Turn

Today's watercolor sketch is of one of the several morning doves that tend to hog the feeders.  This guy sat and waited until the blue jay that was there left and then made himself at home smack center of the flat feeder.  I was surprised that he didn't just move in on the blue jay but this one didn't.  The others are not as polite........lol.

After working with the Sharpie felt tip pen, I decided to use my Lamy Safari fountain pen.  I'm truly starting to appreciate the use of felt tip pens like the Microns and the Sharpie.  They dry fast even on sized watercolor paper.  My ink took forever to dry and even smeared and transferred by the side of my hand.

I love the mourning doves that come around. I don’t have a flat feeder so they patiently eat was is dropped at the bottom. This is a great sketch!

Annie....thank you :-) You would have loved the scene yesterday. There were five all trying to fit in the one small round flat feeder. It was funny to watch them.
