Pecking Order Completed




Finally finished my latest drawing today, I think as much time was spent getting the grass looking right as was spent on the Rhino, but at least I have it somewhere close to the desired effect, Titles I may use are either ''Pecking Order'' or ''Stepping out'' unless something else is suggested. Drawing size is 16 x 10 inches approx, drawn on Mellotex off white paper which is my favourite as it gives warmer tones to the drawing, time was approx 35 hours. I look forward to recieving any comments and title suggestions.... ( As you can see I've decided to go with Pecking Order)

'Buddies'?
Sorry, titles aren't my strongest point. Nice finish, would like to see a closeup to appreciate the details.

Hi Erik I have posted a couple of close ups, sorry they are not very clear but hope they help.

Grahame Butler said...

Hi Sheona Thank you, I agree with you and have decided to go with that as the Title.

A great drawing Grahame! I like Pecking Order as a Title. I am currently painting grass and I find it very tedious and challenging!

Pecking Order is perfect- And you seem to have figured out the grass, because it looks great - Very difficult and time consuming thing to draw and you did it magnificently.

Grahame Butler said...

Hi Jennie, thank you for your kind comments, I think i'm getting there with the grass it just needs refining, but practice makes perfect as they say.
