I saw this on my way home from work this morning.
I ran home to get my camera (Silly, silly girl- NEVER leave home without the camera), but it started raining on my way back, and all the birds were gone. The dense grouping of birds stretched on for maybe 40 yards. My favorite were the regularly spaced birds on the diagonal line. I've never seen birds perched there before.
I think the birds are a bit heavy handed in my drawing. I had planned on doing the whole thing in ink (or stupid sharpie because I still haven't fixed my stupid pen), but I decided to bring some color into it for the background, then the pole, but neglected to bring some in for the birds. They would still have been black or gray, but they wouldn't be so dense- there would have been an ink outline.
I've enjoyed playing with watercolor pencil. It works well with the cards. I like the way the ink looks with it as well, sort of illustrative.
