my house keys

Here it is, everydaymatters challenge #37 (click the link to see the full list). Because I only found the group recently I have quite a backlog of challenges to work through. I really like the idea so I'll use it to get my drawing/sketching/painting flowing again.

The keys were quite fun to draw. I used a pencil (because I'm a wimp) and then graphics pen, then acrylic paints. Overall I'm quite pleased with the way it's turned out. I'll try using these media together again.

Found this while out walking around my local park. It was in pristine condition (apart from being dead), so I picked it up and took it home. A really beautiful bird.


Yet another dead bird - a female Linnet. Had to paint it quite quickly before it started going off...
