Well I spent many hours on this bird! It was not an easy challenge and I'm glad it's done! I have at least 15 layers of colors in some spots and my pencils got quite a workout. Hope you like it! I'm pretty happy with the way it came out.
We had a horrible storm over the weekend and some friends are still without power in the surrounding towns. We, happily, didn't even loose power. But I was drawing downstairs while my husband had gone to bed, and the loud train noises of the wind made my brilliant german shepherd companion come back downstairs to get me to come upstairs so I would be okay! She seemed to think the pack needed to hunker down together! LOL! I put away my colored pencils and dutifully went upstairs where you could really hear the wind going by like a freight train! I turned on the fan I keep in my room to block out the noise a bit, and after I was safely in bed, and the loud noises were muffled by the fan, she settled down by our feet and went to sleep. Nice to know someone is looking out for you!
