Happy Halloween Sculpture

This was a sunset shinning through the window.  Kind of creepy but fun for Halloween.

George Bridgman Copies

I have made copies of George Bridgman's book (Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing form Life).  I use charcoal on tinted paper to copy gesture and line quality.  I love George Bridgman's ability to take the human form and describe it simply.

Wing Spread Egret (Anatomy)

So I was taking pictures when a huge white bird decided to fly over my head.  I just watched in aaahhh until I realized that I had a camera in my hands.  I tried to focus, and snapped a shot as fast as possible.  I think it is an egret??  I will call it an egret until I am proven wrong.

Since the sun is above and light is shining through the feathers you can see the feather pattern.  Plus you can briefly see the wing bone structure.  This would be good for a bird anatomy class.
