So, by happen chance I've been seeing/feeling that many feathered friends have ended up in my work. Crazy thing is, I don't really have any sort of fixation with feathers, laying eggs, or flying. At all. One would think that I did, and I've been commonly asked that. During my most recent show, that particular question was asked of me multiple times. But, no matter what I do, they seem to "swoop" into my subject matter. The only thing that I can think of is that they are just naturally fun to render... thats all I got.
So just recently, I was asked to do a couple of DRAWINGS in pencil of 4 little birdies. It seemed fitting, going along with the natural progressions and all. So, I did them. I had to relearn my pencil techniques. I'm going to post the commissions in order. You will be able to see the slow progression from one to the next. The last is much better than the first in my opinion. Feel free to make your own opinion.
