New bird figurine for studies

Daily Art 05-22-18 bird figurine block in sketch with shadows

I’ve been searching for a good figurine to use as a subject for sketching and painting, and when I saw this little bird in the store I knew it would be perfect. It’s a matte grey color and there’s a fair amount of detail in it, but it’s also simple enough for a block in or loose painting. My goal is to set it up with a variety of lighting styles and angles to practice one subject multiple times.

I did this sketch quickly (time was short due to our moving prep) and although it’s a little too tall I’m pretty happy with it. It feels good to be sketching again!
