As the weather turns colder late in the fall semester, my sketchbook class moves indoors to draw. This assignment was to use bugs/field guides as a source of inspiration for filling a page. The goal: making sure my students know you can always draw anywhere at anytime!
Here is another 4x6 inch postcard with a layer of one-inch squares collaged together to make the background. Once again, each square was cut from a piece of junk mail. I then put a (sparrow shaped) layer of gesso on top of the card and drew a sparrow with a Pitt Micron pen. The last step was to watercolor the image.
