#11 Kristin, robins in the yard

I did this little robin quickly this morning. It is fun to watch the birds hopping around the yard. I haven't painted many birds, but hope to get better at it. The robins remind me of little men in grey suits with white spectacles.

You captured Robin persona really well!! Kristin, what is this lovely paper you use? Is it a color already, or do you do that? It's sooo appealing!

The paper is canson mi-tiens. I think its made for pastels, but I have a bunch of different natural colors cut up and punched to fit in my sketchbook. It is so nice to start with a middle range value and then add darks and lights.
