I've been working on Chester for what must be over a year now, good job its not a commission or I would be in trouble, still not happy with the result, but I think its best to leave him alone now...

Goldfinch Tweeked

As you can see I have tweaked the stem, making this image now 12 inches high, gives it all a little more balance, don't you think?

Goldfinch Completed

Finished this drawing of a Goldfinch off tonight, final size is approx 9 x 4 inches, drawn on Mellotex paper, using mainly a 2h hb & 2b pencil, I'm hoping to get this framed with one or two others and have them on display in the local library in April and May.....
