Still trying the brush pen on the birds. Then switched back to a nib.

Still plovers. Tried drawing them with the brush pen. Ehh. It could work, but maybe with a different sort of brush pen.

I drew this Grey Plover three times. No, 3 1/2 times!

First drawing - nib was too scratchy. It was such a struggle. Sepia ink.

I like the 3rd drawing the best.
