First Page of a New Sketchbook: Abert's Towhee

First page in my new everyday-carry sketchbook. I’ve switched to 6 x 9 inches (~15cm x 23cm) from the previous three 4 x 6-inch sketchbooks I had been taking with me everywhere. At home, I develop ideas, doodle and sketch my studies in a 9” x 12” sketchbook. It made sense to have something that was portable but closer to that larger size. The size difference is much more comfortable and it’s not exactly cumbersome to hold in my hand while walking.

I’m trying out the National Audobon Society’s app as a sort of drawing prompt for times when I find myself in a coffee shop or other in-between, stand-by moments. This is an Abert’s Towhee, a native of the Southwest United States and classified under New World Finches.
