Once again, just practicing and experimenting. Let me know what you think.
The original is roughly 3 x 6.5 inches. I used a mechanical pencil, a prismacolor blue pencil, waterproof pen, and it was mostly done with acrylic paint and in one of the cheap, thin paper, moleskine sketchbooks. The image is of a spotted towhee (I think), and was referenced from the Birds of Oregon Field Guide by Stan Tekiela [link]
