Reminiscent Sketches





Redbush is still reminiscing over her experiences with baby bald this summer. She hopes to sketch and paint the youngster sometime in the future. She is still kicking herself for not having her camera handy when each of the parents arrived to give him food later on when they were camped there. Redbush's camera skills leave a lot to be desired, thus, a lot of her pictures were done on a zoom-in, and are a little fuzzy. Drat! She has some that were just taken as is, so, will hopefully use those as references. Quite a few years back, she did do a sketch of a mature bald eagle from a lake where they were camped. She will share this sketch and more pictures of the baby from this summer. She hopes everyone has a great weekend and wonderful weather this mid- November!

I wish I had half your talent!! That sketch is amazing.

Hilary said...

Oh wow.. what a wonderful sketch. You're so talented! And the images of baby bald are wonderful.

Your sketch gets the eagle's expression wonderfully. And don't complain about the quality of the pictures of the baby--at least you and the camera were there!

Thanks, Bag Lady! I'd love to have your talents! I like to sketch certain animals, so, hope I do justice to baby bald when I sketch him, or her.

Thanks for the compliment, Hilary. Eagles definitely intrigue me especially after our meeting with him this summer.

Solarity, I'm glad you liked the sketch. These camera pictures were some of the ones I took without using the zoom.

What a wonderful sketch.
Your pics got the job done. That's what matters.

David Cranmer said...

That sketch is terrific!

Redbush said...

Thanks, Leah! I will know better the more and more I use my camera!

Thanks for stopping, David! I always have to sketch everything before, or if I decide to put paint to the subject.

And congratulations on being chosen for Posts of the Week! Go, you!

I could surely stand to have a bit of your talent. Congratulations on POTW mention at Hilary's!

There is something quite striking about the eyes of eagles, and most definitely you have talent when it comes to sketching! (I, myself, draw stick figures.) Thank you for sharing, and congratulations on your POTW!

Cricket said...

Yep. What the others said. Wonderful sketch, and, if the pictures don't delight you, well they're still good enough... you got them. That counts.

Congratulations on your potw.

You do some nice artwork, I had fun looking through your blog. I have lots of eagles in the winter around me and enjoy watching them.

What beautiful work. Exquisite. : ) Thanks for sharing your art.

Linda said...

Amazing sketch and wonderful photos. You truly have a talent there.

I would love to be able to get close enough to a bird to take a shot like that. The sketch was awesome....

Redbush said...

Bag Lady, thanks for the heads up about POTW! I feel honored!

Thanks, Leah! I love sketching and animal if the picture does it justice. I can't believe I got POTW! There are so many great blogs out there, and yours is one of them.

Thanks, Lori! Hilary has such lovely photos. I feel humbled.

Kcinnova, thanks for stopping by! You'd be surprised what you could really draw with a little encouragement. I'll bet thery're much better than stick figures!

Thanks, Cricket! I really enjoyed sketching him. Once I'm into a piece, I hate to put it down if it seems to be working. But, just the same applies if it doesn't seem it's working. If I put it aside then, my eyes are wide open when I try to sleep!

Out on the prairie, I envy you for having so many eagles around you! I would have a hay day with the camera! Thanks for your comment!

Life with Kaishon, I appreciate that you enjoyed my piece. Thanks for dropping by.

Thanks for the compliment, Linda! I'm glad you stopped by!

Gaelikka, thanks so much! We felt so priviledged this summer to have taken as many pictures as we had. I'm going to do some sketches of the little guy in the very near future, and hopefully they will work out so I may share them!
