Robin by Robyn

I get really excited every time I see a robin since it is my name bird and we don't have them in Australia. I tried to draw this one from memory, having seen it on a shed at the farm in Beck Hole where we stayed in Yorkshire. I sketched it in pencil first and then used my watercolour pencils to colour the bird. I am not sure that I got the shape quite right and I know that the beak is not exactly what it should be but it's a start.

one of my best freinds is called Robin and he lives in the uk...everytime I hear the word robin...I think of him. I live in OZ too! when I was in the uk last year I saw a robin in my parents back yard....it was fantastic sad though as I had no camera! :(
