So on to more enjoyable things. Here is the finished parrot and am pleased to how it came out as a first attempt at this type of picture. It is pretty rough and crude in comparison to those who really do the medium and certainly can see that it will take many more hours of practice to get a more delicate touch and further develop my eye for the shading. I do like the way the black dots add depth and shading but really like the enhancement of the colored pencil over just the stark black and white of pen/ink work to me it really makes it come alive. This practice will lend itself well to do while watching tv or porch sitting so think I'll be able to find the time to get more of this repetition work in. Will do a comparison for beginning of summer versus end of summer to see if there is improvement.
Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment if you wish, love to hear any feedback and do appreciate objective eyes helping me see things I miss and have a great week.
