Finished Stage of The Pileated Woodpecker

June 8, 2014 § 4 Comments

IMG_4406I haven’t posted for awhile, but finally am finishing the drawing of a Pileated Woodpecker feasting on bugs from a dead tree stump.  The last stage involved watercolor washes to support the line drawing or the contour.  This stage shows gradations of colored pencil to provide a more subtle clarity to the picture and some pen & ink to allow for more drama.  It is a riot of color now as the orange leaves swirl about the bird.  I am working with this type of mixed media to spur me towards a more free approach.  I still have a ways to go!!  Any advise or input would be welcomed!IMG_4406
