Kingfisher study in coloured pencils on Strathmore smooth paper.

Finished off this little Kingfisher study today, and overall I’m rather pleased with it. Drawing anything at this scale does present its own set of challenges, namely getting the right amount of detail in so that it looks the part but isn’t too cluttered: a balance that I think I achieved. In addition, I learnt more about using coloured pencils and how they interact with one-another, blending and detail work.

An interesting little project, and one that will help future pieces a lot. Now to ponder what to work on next, which is not a bad problem to have by any means.
