Bird Study: Liwi Bird (Red Honeyeater)


One of my last blog posts over the next few days.  Got Christmas stuff on!  Hurrah!  Will be good to chill out a bit I must say.  I am bringing my drawing materials with me though.  Can't help that.  Drawing does chill me out for the most part!.  Just trying to decide on what equipment to bring.

I didn't actually know that this bird existed, I was going to draw a Kiwi and typed Liwi instead.  It was good find though.   I found this bird stunning.  Anyhoo, another animal study, no pencils and using a reference from google.  I asked my partner if we can spend time in the zoos over the next few days so I can draw while looking at an actual animal.  That would be nice.

Christmas is upon us and I spent big this year.  Perhaps it;s because I know I have a steady job next year and that I am planning to save, save, save in 2014.  Probably means actually bringing packed brekky and lunches to work and not eat out so much which is one my biggest expenditures.  Definitely need to stop having take-away coffee everyday too, that definitely adds up.   

Hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas!!!
