I did quite a bit of research to find this specific bird. It’s called an Olive-Backed Pipit. I was looking for a small bird that is found in Israel, and this is one of them. I’ve never drawn a bird before, much less researched the various species, but it’s for a specific project I have in mind. It might fit into the theme for Illustration Friday — which is “Fail” this week — if I finish a version I like on time. In any case, there’s a bit of a story that comes with the bird, which I will recount when I show the final version. Whatever it ends up looking like, I almost don’t care because doing the research was the part I enjoyed the most so far. Oh, and drawing too, that was okay.
