An Alaskan Peep

My heart soars to learn that there are birds in this world called 'peeps' so I just had to draw one of them. I've started on 'Rufous-Necked Stint' who is in summer attire.
This is the preliminary sketch that I will draw upon for the finished painting. Now I'm starting to put down color.
I'd wanted to join in on the Tag Tuesday fun as this week the theme was water birds, but I fear I may not complete this bird in time for a post there. We shall see. Here's a closer view. I've given it a very black beak indeed.
Well, time to get back to the drawing board. I've not seen you for awhile so just wanted to pop in to say hello to everyone. Hope everything is good with you. *smiles* Norma
