Ever since the fall fair, I’ve been indulging my old love of drawing again.  When I found an amazing shot of a soaring great egret in a magazine borrowed from the library, I was inspired to try and reproduce it with pencil crayon on light blue paper.

Here’s the inspirational photo with my rendering of it above.  The wings were so challenging to do, I almost gave up on the project.

I feel good about what I’ve produced.  It’s been ages since I’ve sketched with pencil crayon but it’s as fun and rewarding now as it was way back then.  I’ve already got two more quite different art project ideas in the works.  Stay tuned.
