The start of my color sketches! In my new sketchbook!

 

PLATE 19 Tattlers, Turnstones, Dowitchers, Snipe, Woodcock

When I was putting together the plate, I realized I missed some of the snipes. So I drew them today.

Rufous-necked Stint, Little Stint, Long-toed Stint

Was unhappy here about the way I drew the back feathers. Soon after, I decided to pencil in the back feathers before inking. Easier to get all the feathers in and leave the white parts white.
