Re: Local Birds

Your Yellow Warbler is great! So much detail. Beautiful proportions and I trust it's accurate. Love the feather structures and shading. The background was a great idea to make him pop forward too. He really would've vanished against the cream Moleskine paper.

I also know how hard it is to get a smooth colored pencil background on that paper, did one colored pencils sketch in mine and am going back to pen and ink because it was too frustrating. This came out wonderful. Well done!
