It's better to draw from life, but sometimes I like to flip through my photo albums for appealing shapes.

I really love the shape of a gate that was at my grandparents' house (probably gone now). It wasn't until I started drawing it that I realized how poorly constructed it was! At the risk of "ruining" the simple sketch, I ended up embellishing it a bit with these birds. Why not?
