Draw a Little Every Day: Day 19

I decided to take a break from this challenge because I caught a bad cold and needed the time to recover. In hindsight, maybe that was a bad thing, because I'm sure I would have created some really interesting images in my tired, befuddled state... ah well... Anyway, after my last post, +Jo Owens on Google+ asked me if I was any good at drawing finches, and since I'd never drawn one before, I thought I see if I was. I decided to draw the head from a zebra finch. Zebra finches are one of my favourite birds, because they're not only pretty, but they make a delightful noise:

 So, here's my zebra finch, done in pencil crayon.

    1. Most birds tend to have that look on their faces. Maybe they are surprised that us slow, dundering humans can actually see them!
