Topic: Bible Journaling
When I have read through this section of scripture in the past, I have always zeroed in on the phrases 'the hairs of your head are numbered' and 'fear not'. This time I wanted to focus on the fact that God treasures us and finds us to be of great worth to himself.
I looked up photos of sparrows on the internet to get their shape and coloring right. I wanted to make sure they looked like sparrows and not like robins, hawks or parrots! Good photo reference is essential.
I had just thumbed through a book on botanical drawing and took a few photos from the back pages. In that, I studied the structure of a branch that I could incorporate into the drawing for the birds to perch upon.
I drew with a pencil, traced with fine-line pen, erased the pencil lines and added colored pencil to the drawing.
Various lettering styles were pencilled in, inked and colored before I added lots of doodle swirls and colored them.
I used my favorite color to lightly color the sky as my finishing touch.
