Animal Wednesday - Snowy Plover

As I sat watching tv, at least it was on, I did this with colored pencils.  It was a copy of a photograph that was in an Audubon Magazine.  I loved the scene of this little chick snuggling it Momma as she  still sat on some eggs. Marvelous photograph.

Mother birds and baby chicks are so cute and this has a such a tender feel to it.

Such images are so cute - they pull on our hearts. How do they get those shots and how do you sketch them--talent!

Awww this is sooo cute. Great job on it. Sometimes I can do the best drawings with the TV on.. It quiets the logical non creative side of my brain that bugs me to do better or go do something else. :)
