Little Bird on a Wire Sketch...




My grandfather loved these little birds.  I'm not sure what they're called.  They're small, brown and white, and tend to be a little round.  I think they might be sparrows, but I'm not sure.  Anyway, here's a little sketch of one of them, I was thinking about my grandfather and looking at some photographs of them that I took for him.  The quality of the photograph isn't good enough to use as reference for a painting, those little birds are difficult to photograph, but it was just fine for a sketch...

I've progressed a bit with my mermaid sketch, it's on canvas with a bit of paint a post down.  I also finished my oaks painting that I shared the sketch of, it's a few posts down.

Thanks so very much! My grandfather really loved birds so much. I'm glad to learn that I may be correct in what the little bird is called too :).
