I did this watercolor sketch using only the 3/4inch brush shown on the right. I did not pre sketch in pencil but lay down dibs and dabs w tip of brush color by color building the bird.
Just as i was finishing there was a disturbance. My dogs and neighbor dogs started barking. Then a flock of geese flew over heading south. Dogs heard them long before I did. Of course.
Nice way to start morning with the hint that this heat wave will pass and fall will come.
