I guess I like to work big! I compared 3 seed heads / pods as it's winter and NO flowers, even the leaves are all gone. This was very fun and I did get to wonder about prickles, opposite vs. alternate leaves (I could tell by the attachment points that remained) and stem striations. I liked having all the information, drawing, writing, as well as a little bit about size. This lesson was very useful for me to think about all the things that can vary from subject to subject.
It took me many attempts (in pencil) and erasures to get the shape of the bird correct. I don't think any part of it was really easy.
I noticed more details about the warbler, where it has black and where it has it's orange stripes. Also that the eye is at the same level as the beak, I though it would be above the beak a bit.
