There’s this magic suet recipe that’s easy to make and highly effective for attracting birds. Once you start putting Zick Dough out there, the mobbing never stops until the last crumb is picked by the smallest wren. Just place a feeder by a window and watch it from a comfy chair with hot tea and sketchbook in hand. You will have instant live models. Ready, set, sketch.
Good practice for bird-drawing. From where I sat, I didn’t even need binoculars. Which was nice, because, from where they sat, it was 16 degrees F.
News flash: Drawing the Motmot has just been named one of the Top 25 Drawing Blogs by Feedspot. An awesome honor.
