Love the drawing and the bird appears very inquisitive looking directly at the viewer. Super!

Very good, I like the composition with the pose of the bird and that arching stem, and I really like those leaves. I think your bird might be a goldfinch though. :)

You are right Kay, of course it is a goldfinch. I must have been having a senior moment.

This is a very good and carefully planned out drawing. I would have though Goldfinch rather than Chaffinch, saying that it's hard to say without colour. Cleverly done. Paul :-)
Edited......I've just seen the above replies that it is a Goldfinch. :wave:

Beautiful graphite work George.
I like that you allowed the sunflower heads to dip so we could see the backside patterns. Many will only sketch or paint the frontal view of the bloom.
You have given the bird's head a nice tilt.
