I’m on Instagram!

September 8, 2016



I haven’t posted on my blog lately because I’ve been sharing my sketches, drawings and paintings on Instagram. It’s quick, easy and all the kids are using it. You can see my work here.

Sketch: Common Merganser

‘Common Merganser’ (2016) by Jamie Kapitain, ink, watercolor, acrylic on paper.

Walking to the office last week, I spotted this bird on the Speed River. The river, visible from my office when there are no leaves on the trees, is a well-travelled route for many birds including geese, ducks, and even a bald eagle.
