Collared Dove pencil sketch

I have started to make some sketches of my garden birds. It is early days yet and I have not practised drawing for quite some time, hopefully my efforts will improve.

Collared Dove
This is a sketch of one of the regular Collared Doves that visit our garden. Of course it is nigh on impossible to identify individuals with any certainty, but in the afternoon a lone Dove feeds on the bird table then sits on the iron post of the bird feeders to watch the world go by.


  1. I missed this somehow. You are very talented! This is so good.

  2. Why thanks Nicky, I have just started to draw and paint again. Not really done any since I was a youngster. More to come soon.
