Quick pencil sketch of a Ruddy Turnstone, winter plumage, with shells and a pile of drift.
This past week we've had two snows, so I needed to get my mind off the cold and non-plowed streets. I pulled out my bag of shells, driftwood, barnacles, and other items gathered from Kiawah Island (gathered during my family trip this past December) and looked through photos for reference. I drew this off a photo my dad took. You can check out his website to see more of his amazing photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/vmibiology/
