A Bird
by: Marty

Hello Jubi:

You have done a gracious piece of artwork here, I love it. I am like Kerry ad Michael, I love birds.

They give us such beautiful music.

I have a lady here in town that wants me to paint her a Red Bird on some tree branches.

And she already paid for it.

Would you believe she gave my granddaughter/daughter a brand new Dell computer with a 17 inch monitor and printer.

Ihaven't even started on the painting yet.

She saw some of my paintings hanging in our home when she came for a visit. So she went home and came back with the computer and everything that goes with it. She just knocked on the door and had all this stuff sit it on the living room floor and told me what type painting she wanted and wouldn't take no for an answer.

Now I have a great drawing of a beautiful bird to give me something to go by.

Thank You Jubi

Marty!

Flights of the Cormorants

by Jim Corbett
(Seongnam City, S.Korea)

Cormorants Drawing

Cormorants Drawing

I originally did this for a challenge on drawspace.com using a reference photo. In the actual photo, there were more cormorants in the water so I decided to focus on a few that could illustrate various stages of flight.

To begin, I drew five ovals to represent the different cormorants. Then, I worked on each cormorant adding a round head, slightly curved neck, long bill, wings and tail feathers.

The wings, believe it or not, were difficult to draw because the height of them determines the stage of flight. The cormorant on the rocks, for example, is just flexing its wings in preparation for take off. This is why I included two small indicator lines. The bird in the top right, however, is as straight as an arrow.

Then, I drew the rocks. Again, the actual photo contained many more rocks so I selected only a few to provide the main idea. Also, the rocks made an excellent starting frame on the left side and since the cormorants are moving right, it gives the appearance of never ending space to fly.

Then, I crazily drew waves all over the page. I added a few waves beyond the rocks to show but most were concentrated parallel and in front of the rocks. I was also sure to place many waves directly around the rocks to give the impression of a rough shore.

Then, I focused on darkening the cormorants to make them stand out. I was careful not to conceal the eyes and bills completely. Then, I shaded medium tones around the rocks to show depth and contour. By adding lines around the edges of the rock, the depth is really clear.

Finally, I drew a couple of faint horizontal lines to represent the horizon and lightly shaded the top portion of the page to represent fog. This way, the division between the water and sky is clear yet, at the same time, part of the same landscape.

**Note from Kerry:

Hello Jim
Wow!! Thanks for a brilliant description of how you went about the drawing. That should help so many people and I am truly grateful to you for taking the time for such detail.

Layered Falcon

Layered Falcon

Hi everyone

I did an improved falcon. I darkened the feathers instead of all one level of color - now it's more alive.

I thought you'd like to see what layers of graphite can do.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Ronald

I am very impressed! I have compared the 2 drawings and it is easy to see a marked difference. I've put the first drawing just above here on this page so everyone can take a look at your first entry.

You make me happy Ronald, it's nice to see how much you enjoy your art. Thank you.

Lonely Duck

by Windy
(Qatar)

Lonely Duck

Lonely Duck

I think about an idea that gives the meaning of solitude.
So, I started to draw the duck from the story which I think every one knows (about the black duck).

I often give my drawings a title that have a strong meaning.

I hope to read your opinion about it.

thanks for reading

Windy

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Windy, well, I really like your drawing. It's so well done. You are right to put thought into the title, it gives it more strength and meaning.

Nope, don't know the story.
by: Shane

I know "The Ugly Duckling." But I do not know The Black Duck. Are they the same story? About the ugly duckling that did not belong, but grew into a beautiful swan?

BIRDY

by Kathy Guzman
(Camden NJ 08103)

This is my bird

This is my bird

One day we were walking down the park and something caught the corner of my eye, a bird, a robin bird. It was beautiful.

So we were at walmart and i saw a drawing set. The set came with pencils and erasers and papers. I saw a picture of a robin i looked at it for about five minutes and began to draw. I messed up a few times but kept going and when i finally finished it looked like this, BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!

***Note from Kerry:
I couldn't agree more, Kathy, it is beautiful. It's really amazing if you don't draw very often.

Birds

Observing birds

Observing birds

You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird . . .

So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing - that's what counts.

I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.



***Note from Kerry:
Creative,
This is very pretty, it's a lovely drawing.

Sorry
by: Kerry

Hi Shubha

I am so sorry, I was away while those comments were posted and I didn't catch them in time. They have been deleted now.

Please ignore them, it stems from jealousy that you have found a peace and love in drawing. I can't think of any other reason why people can be so mean and nasty. There is no call for it.

You improve with every drawing that you do, keep going, you are doing very well.

Thank you Marty for keeping an eye on the place for me while I was away.

Duck
by: Marty

Hello Again Shubha;

Please don't pay any attention to people that say stupid things.

You have just started and your duck is great for starting out. You will improve with practice.

We all had to start somewhere and people that pokes fun at someone else needs to look in a mirror and count your blessings for life is short and the words that we use can come back to haunt us.

So Shubha just keep drawing as your artwork is grand.

With Warm Regards

Marty!
