Second Christmas drawing...a Norther Cardinal on holly, which was for my parents! Very happy with this, as I tried a front view, which is new for me. Only criticism is that I should've shifted the feet a little further down the branch, so something to watch next time I do a view like this. Mostly in oil pastel.

Ooh, I'll have to show these to my father next time I see him. He does the annual bird count in our area (if it's not snowing too hard) and has been nominated (and declined) for president of our local chapter of the Audobon society, I'm sure he'd love them!

Thanks. If you show them to him, I hope he likes them! :)

Doing a happy dance as this is my most favorite of all birds! :hyper:

The Cardinals are so beautiful especially when seen on a snow covered scene and on holly berry trees/limbs as you have done with this one. I believe this is a male Cardinal as the females are a slightly pale red or brownish color. My most favorite bird to see at my bird feeders.

Excellent job, CW! Thanks for sharing with us. :)

I've never seen a cardinal up close. But this looks about as good as the art in my old Wildlife Treasury Encyclopedia of Vertebrates.

Great work on this, CW. I don't think I've ever seen a Carnidal up close either. Even so, I can tell this is a great representation of one. I also like the holly branch. That's a great touch, putting the bird into some of it's environment. It really adds the seasonal touch, too.

I was reminded of this picture last week while looking out my own windows at home and seeing a beautiful Cardinal sitting in a tree with snow all over the place. Such a beautiful sight!! :)

Snow is almost gone here now but the Cardinal still comes to eat from the bird feeders.

Love this picture, CW! :yes:

One of my most favorite bird drawings here!! The Cardinal is my favorite bird! :clap:

Saw one Cardinal at our bird feeder outside on Thanksgiving Day yesterday. It is a beautiful and magnificent bird!!

Bumping this beautiful drawing up once again as it so reminds me of the Christmas season and winter season. Absolutely love these birds and we have several of them where we live. I love to watch them every day. Brightens my day!!
