I used the B&W photo of the bird and used inktense in different colors trying to get the values
5x6 WC paper 1/2 hr


I have been reading Micheal Reardons art book so was inclined to try the bridge using some of his techniques
also 5x6 WC paper , an hour or less


I still hope to do a drawing of little bean

Your bird is fun with the magenta pink bg! The bridge is splendid! Loving this new approach!

I love your colorful grosbeak, and that bridge is terrific! I especially like how you've painted the bank in the foreground.

You nailed the values with the bird, and I don't know anything about Michael Reardon's technique, but your technique looks terrific!

What a striking little guy on the branch. The bridge is super!! And ditto to what Wendy said about not knowing Reardon but enjoying your take on it :)
