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.

Last page of my sketchbook! Yey, feeling of accomplishment!
(I wrote the wrong date!)
11 and 12 October 2011
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.

Red Knot, Great Knot
I missed a row of feathers there on the Great Knot’s back.
