Funny Ostrich Sketch (Watercolour)

It seems a long time since I picked up a brush, even though it was only 4 or 5 days ago. That’s what a weekend away can do…

Today was just a bit of fun to get the eye and hand working in mostly the same direction. It’s a fairly quick sketch from a photo on paintmyphoto by Sandy Scott, trying to concentrate on letting the water carry the paint to give soft fluffy edges, with some dry brush strokes here and there.

Some things worked, others not so well… for a simple shape it is deceptively hard to get right, demonstrating¬†that I could do with some drawing practise as well!
