This morning I got to thinking about birds (no surprise here) and their bills. Bird's bills are as varied as the birds themselves. Some are very colorful. I thought I would do quite a few bills on one page. When I got started I realized if I didn't put the heads on too they would really look odd. So it all became more involved than what I originally expected to do.
After that I got to thinking about all the details I like to put onto my sketches. One thing leads to another. I just love details. Altoon Sultan at Studio and Garden is a great artist and I love the way she writes about art. Today she wrote about details in paintings. You might find it interesting.
