I certainly must have been a real bird brain when doing my #dailycreating drawings for September. You see, every drawing that I show you in this post is a portrait of a BIRD! I truly love trying to capture the personality of birds. Even the birds of prey have their own loveliness.
As members of the Facebook group #dailycreating, hostessed by artist Terry Runyan, we are encouraged to do some sort of creating, whatever strikes our fancy, each day. I originally joined this group more than three years ago to work on improving my drawing. So, that's mostly what I do.
Lately, however, the Pandemic is taking its toll on my emotional state, and often I find it almost too much to think about drawing. So, occasionally I do miss a day, much to my chagrin.
Each Sunday afternoon, Terry posts a list of optional prompts for the coming week. This is another thing that I have veered away from at times, especially recently. I feel badly about that. But, my interest for awhile now has been more or less serious drawings of wildlife. If a prompt seems to fit along those lines, I gladly embrace it. If I feel up to drawing.
I guess September found me embracing the world of birds. So, I present to you 15 of the bird drawings I feel are adequate to share with the public. As I've done all these months, I will include above each image the prompt and any other pertinent information about my subject matter.

Obviously I was thrilled with all the color prompts. It was so easy to do a search for birds of a specific color. Great fun!
For Wednesdays, #thing on thing day, I always choose to draw a bird with something extraneous on the head, such as plumage, messy hair, or even something weird on its beak.
Also, Terry had originally dedicated Saturdays to #caturday, after awhile adding #dogurday. Some time ago, she finally added as a possibility #animal-urday. Once again, lots of fun for me.
Please don't print or copy in any way my original artwork. Contact me if you would like a print. Thanks for your respect in this regard.
Stay tuned for October #dailycreating in about a month. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy.
