Green Jay

 This is the origianl drawing of the Green Jay.
I jotted down the colors for reference.

 Then I added the box around it.

 I scanned the drawing into Photo Shop Elements and erased the color notations.

 Then I added lovely color - the thing that beckons our eyes to turn towards it.

I used a "National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Birds" as my color guide.
And, of course, I used a tiny bit of artistic license with the colors...even though the bird is very bright without my assistance!

Unless I pull out pen and paper again, this is the last of the bird drawings that I have for you. Although I may try my hand at a few raptors...
