Day 7 of work on this piece has brought it to this point. A commenter asked about my use of B grade 'leads' a day or two ago and today I've been doing a lot of layering softer grades of graphite over areas worked yesterday and the day before to bring up the dark values and to continue to help to move things forward and back to mimic depth and dimension. As I've noted in previous posts, my technique of layering ever softer grades of graphite to build up the darks will make up the core of this work as there are so many dark recesses to portray.

Love this composition Terry! I'm a big fan of house sparrows as well.
