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?

Lovely drawing Grahame .. I think that's a masterstroke extending the stem - definitely makes the picture more interesting.

This is beautiful Grahame, I love doing those "quicker/smaller" drawings , don't you? They are very satisfying to me. I think the change was perfect, added a lot of character & interest.
