Fairies have been a common theme amongst my sketches, but this one has more of a Jane Austin feel about her. Probably due to all of the Jane Austin books I've been indulging in. ;)

Two of my friends had babies within hours of each other so it only seemed natural that my 'sketch of the day' be inspired by them. Their daughter's names are Winnie and Violet and I drew this sketch as a way of celebrating this happy occasion and welcoming them into our world. This was also my first time attempting to draw a baby and I'm surprisingly happy with the way she turned out. :)

I saw some ducklings playing in the water the other day and took a million photos to capture them.
Once I started drawing them, I realized that I would really like to add color, so I changed my definition of 'sketching' to include watercolors. :)
These two siblings were hiding underneath the lily pads and I just thought that they were too cute!

This little guy had a lot of character. It was really a lot of fun drawing these sweet little bundles of fluff and webbed feet! I just might end up drawing a few more of them...

I haven't seen a blue jay in our neighborhood in years, but I saw this one the other day in my backyard and just had to draw him. The colors of his plumage take my breath away. Nature is so incredible!

What sorts of things have been inspiring you this week? Has spring brought about a return of some of your favorite flora or fauna?
