For Day 11 of the Inktober Challenge I drew a Black-faced Cuckoo Shrike. The pattern and colouring of their back feathers is what attracted me to this bird. The name is apparently a reference to their feathers, which have a similar pattern to those of cuckoos, and their beak which resembles that of shrikes. This bird is native to Australia and southern new Guinea. It has a protected status in Australia.
For Day 12 of Inktober I drew Zebra Finches
A drawing a day is starting to feel relentless. Where is the Finish Line!? I haven’t been paying too much attention to the Inktober prompts but ideas and my enthusiasm for Inktober is starting to wane. The prompt word for day 13 is ‘teeming’ so I thought I would draw a page of teeming insects. I didn’t draw as many as I intended. I lost steam.
Well, what shall I draw today???
