With my head still a bit cluttered from my recent bout with the flu, I was able to sit at the drawing board yesterday for the needed hour or so to complete this piece that has been leering at me, begging to be finished, for the last couple of weeks. Titled Night Light, it is most likely headed to inventory for the upcoming Waterfowl Festival on the eastern shore of Maryland in mid November. It's 6 1/2" square.
What's next? Hmm, good question!

That's very cool looking.

must take a lot of work not to smudge all that. I use pencil myself when I'm not messing around in Microsoft paint, and I tell you for a fact, science fact, that this isn't easy at all. good work : )

Very comple drawing, this one - with so many subjects.I am still struggling with darks..usually I lose my values once I put layers on one place.Your darks look so imposing! Do you use graphic pencils only or is there any hint of charcole in it?
Great piece, BTW.

Thanks all. Arti, no charcoal just ever increasing softer layers of graphite to build up the darks.
