Small sketches of hummingbirds, scattered through my June art journals, are changing the way that I look at these tiny creatures. I try to sketch them in flight as well as perched on a feeder. I've been using watercolor pencils, standard colored pencils, watercolors, Micron pen, and graphite pencil as my tools for these little drawings.
My go-to resource for working on bird drawings this summer is "The Laws Guide to Drawing Birds" by John Muir Laws, a talented bird artist. There are so many hints and observing tips in this book that I find more information to absorb every time I study another page.
