In my teens and early twenties, I drew and painted every day for hours. For various reasons, I stopped doing art for almost two decades, and I'm currently trying to get back into it!
Sometimes Bucky just sticks his little beak into the air in a very regal pose.
I'm going to draw this little guy until he fledges which should be in three to four weeks.
Bucky, the little baby Puffling that's the star of the explore.org 'Puffin Burrow' cam, is growing by leaps and bounds and very curious about his world.
On July 5, puffling Bucky devoured any fishes the parents brought in two seconds flat and then angrily chirped and snapped at them.

My husband and I watch the explore.org puffins webcams every year. One of the cameras is hidden directly in a burrow, so that we can watch the little puffin family that lives there. (Willie, Millie and little Bucky.) Bucky is an adorable and feisty little fellow. He's so cute and funny! I've decided to fill a tiny little sketchbook I bound a short while ago (coptic stitch, mixed-media paper) with drawings of Bucky and started today with a drawing of the egg.

In the first step, I mentally divided the picture I used as reference into "puffin = positive space, background = negative space" and filled in the negative space with medium grey felt-tip pen. Second step: I divided the puffin into "white feathers and eyes = positive space, black feathers = negative space" and filled the NS with dark grey. Next step: dividing eye and beak into PS and NS, and so on.

I have to admit that I almost never draw something directly with a pen I cannot erase. I always do a light pencil sketch first before I commit. But the skillshare class I'm doing atm has a strict "no eraser"-rule, so... I can see a lot that I would normally erase and redo, but it's not as bad as I expected!
Done following the Skillshare class "Urban Sketching for Beginners: Watercolour Sketch in 3 Steps".
I know that this has a LOT of problems! I've quickly discovered that before I draw any more houses, I need to figure out perspektive... 1-point-perspektive? Elevation drawing? A mixture of both? I've looked at some tutorials and I've already started on a new drawing, but I think it will take some practise.
Done following the Skillshare class "Botanical Illustration Intensive: Draw Plants Using Science and Style" – I'm trying to improce my watercolor skills.
