Sparrows...


Ik had ze een tijdje niet gezien, mussen. Ze worden steeds zeldzamer.
Ik was zo blij dat ze de voedercontainer op mijn balkon bezoeken, dus ik moest ze schilderen.

I had not seen them for some time, sparrows. They are getting rarer and rarer.
I was so pleased to see them visiting the feeder on my balcony, so they had to be painted.

Both renditions are lovely Judy! We still get several varieties here, some of my favorite are the tiny chipping sparrow.

Het zijn zo leuke vogels en behoorlijk druk. Ze zijn gezellig en ze hebben behoorlijk wat praatjes.
Ik vind ze schitterend Judy. Mooie kleuren en echt goed gedaan.

Judy said...

Thanks Laura! Nice to hear there are sparrows on the other side of the ocean too.

Dankje Renske, het was even zoeken naar de goede kleuren. Ik heb uiteindelijk indigo in plaats van grijs gebruikt.

I love when the sparrows visit my feeder as well - yours are lovely and I feel as if they may fly away at any moment!

Jane said...

It is true , you don't see them that much any longer...where did they go ?? Your painting of them is beautiful !

Laura Moore said...

Hi Judy. Love both your paintings. Birds are special creatures in my eyes. They have the freedom to fly anywhere and when they choose to visit us that makes us feel special too perhaps. Enjoy them whilst you can. xx

Blaga said...

Both are lovely! The top one is more precise and with a nice background. the second seems very spontaneous and I like the random colors. It must have been difficult to sketch these moving models.

Judy said...

Thanks everyone! Blaga, they posed for me just long enough to take a photo! :)
