Day 11

Day 11
A tiny Hedge Sparrow
Day 11 of 100 days of doodles.
For today's sketch I looked through my reference collection of British Bird books,
and came across the little Hedge Sparrow. I love the tiny little details in Sparrow's plumage, i've painted them a few times using very small paintbrushes and watercolours, so wasn't sure how those little details would translate to marker pens. I think it turned out ok, though not as much detail as i'd like, it's not bad for such a quick sketch. I managed to get slightly more detail in this 15 minute sketch, but perhaps should have gone for a bigger scale to work with the chunky pen nibs! I could have done with another 5 minutes to add some detail to the foliage before the timer went off!
