Robin in the snow

Hello ... 

The sun is shining but it's still cold here and temperatures are expected to drop to minus 6°C...

I've been out buying food for the birds and squirrels to keep them going through this cold weather and as it happens I have a little painting to share of a robin in the snow


I hand drew this little one and yep, it took me a while to get it right ... I'm not that marvellous at drawing but I'm trying to improve


I have a fondness for line drawing with loose watercolour and that's just what this is ... Very loose, done with Gansai Tambi paints


Though I make these into cards ... I can't bear to part with my first attempts so I may have to frame them

I hope you are enjoying your day and I'll be back tomorrow for the City Crafter Challenge

Be safe

Oh, you did a wonderful job drawing the beautiful robin! Lovely background and branch, too! I do like love watching the birds out my kitchen window! I miss seeing the cardinals, but I did see a blue jay last week.

You can add another skill to your long list of talents; your drawing is stunning. I am in awe... This card reminds me of a card you sent me a few years ago. Also with a robin. And this is a jaw dropper. Frame it and keep it; wow!
It's cold here; at this very moment already minus 3...brrrrr. Stay warm dear!

So sweet, love it!

Oh Ros! You did an amazing drawing job on this precious bird. Your detail is perfect. His little eye and well...just all of it. Kudos to you! Hugs!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Oh my, you are brilliant in drawing Ros, beautiful bird on a lovely card!

Barbara said...

Just lovely! You did a great job drawing and water coloring. Though somehow the little bird looks like he's freezing - which wouldn't be surprising at minus 6°C!

Leslie Miller said...

Amazing! I thought "ooh, I'd love to have that stamp", but nooOOOooo! You're getting so good at your drawing, Ros! I love the loose watercolor look and one needs an image with wide-open lines like this to be able to enjoy it. Many of my stamps are too detailed for this kind of painting. You did such a beautiful job and I adore it. The simple branch is the perfect embellishment.

Marina said...

You're so talented!

Greta said...

Yes indeed--frame them, Ros! I'm totally in awe of your painting--looks perfect to me! Beautiful Robin & love the background!

Alexandra MacVean said...

Absolutely stunning and beautiful! I LOVE this card.

Pamellia Johnson said...

WOW WOW WOW!!! Ros I am just so impressed with your talent for drawing, this birdie image has stolen my heart today! I love the expression on his face, so gentle and sweet. I love to hear people feeding the birds the squirrels, this is such a hard time of year for them and they need a little help from us!! You should definitely keep this one in a frame for sure, a real work of art!! hugs :)

Diane said...

WOW, this is fabulous!! If you can draw this good, then you don't need stamps, like I said it is fabulous!! I saw 2 Robins yesterday int he yard and was very surprised to see some still here, we are to get a rain/snow mix tonight, too cold for those birdies!!

Mona Pendleton said...
