Sorry in advance for the poor image quality of these (and the forthcoming) sketch photos. These particular little birds were copied from The Boy Who Drew Birds, one of my favorite children's books (about John James Audubon). These were fun to draw--I just took the book out, found a couple of pictures I liked and pulled out the pencil (and then colored pencils) to do the drawings. You learn so much when you copy other drawings like how the artist might have made different decisions. I highly recommend it.
