Kingfisher - WIP

A few crazy days…no writing or art…dealing with life … Working on body a bit more and back to head…getting close there…(skipped some of the early steps :slight_smile: )

Thank you!

I’ve only seen a kingfisher once, by a river, so I sat there for 20 minutes sipping tea from a flask and nibbling a sandwich, hoping it would come back but it didn’t.
Your painting makes up for that :slight_smile:

Yes I never was able to get a good photo of one.

More stickwork…trying to figure it out…almost…almost…

In case you haven’t figured it out by now I do a hellofalot of f’ing around and finding out. :slight_smile:
Never had an art lesson in my life but have studied a few books…particularly Pencil Drawing/Technique.

A lot of drawing/painting involves good observation and you certainly have that! Excellent, keep going!! You haz skills!

It’s a nice contrast between the very alive kingfisher and the very dead stick.
