The Art of a Sketchbook

Bird Sketches from Barnes & Nobel sketchbook, Graphite, ©2012, Nancy Van Blaricom

I think I'm back on track now... and I haven't  forgotten about "Sketchbook Friday". Here are a few bird sketches I've done recently. 

These were all done in my Barnes & Noble sketchbook that I told you about back in September.  I've sketched in this particular sketchbook almost daily since I bought it back in July.


  1. Very well done, Nancy.You are going to become an expert in birds, and it's not easy to draw, you caught the rightvattitudes, theybarenlively.

  2. Cool! Being a birder myself, I have to wonder, how do you get them to sit still long enough to sketch them? ;) I can't get them to stay still long enough to snap a photo.

  3. Nice to see you again and I love these sketches!

  4. These are lovely, Nancy. I especially like the top row... soft and delicate. I have the Barnes & Noble sketchbook also, and think its great.

  5. I am always drawn (no pun) to sketches and these are no exception. Beautifully done! Wonderful little studies.
