The sparrow used to be a very common bird, but lately their numbers have shrunk. I barely see them at all. 😦 I had a nice reference photo for this, sadly I don’t know the author, and I simplified it a bit by putting in only one bird. This is one of my most detailed and photorealistic drawings.
As always I’m amazed at how difficult hands are to draw when you want to make them look detailed. These old hands holding the crumbs of bread were especially complex. I think I also achieved a nice texture on the sleeves.
If you like my work, check out my Facebook page for all of the drawings. If you’re interested in commissioning a piece or buying an existing one, it’s best to contact me through Facebook or email.
