Its been a while since my last post, due to the fact that my sons and I have been building a conservatory/studio at the rear of my house, as you can see we are now ready to construct the conservatory which we hope to do this weekend, still a couple of weeks worth of work left as we only get one day a week to do the work, but hope to be finished for my birthday the first week of May.
As for drawings, the Barn Owl ended up in the bin, as I was unhappy with the background, I've started a re-draw of my baby wren on a tractor brake handle, but this time in coloured pencils, I'll post an update later this week.

Thought I had better show an update on the new work. I've had to move on to one of the rafters and leave the Owl work until later, once Ive completed this piece I cant cause any damage to the Owl work completed so far. What you see here is approx 6 x 3.5 inches and maybe half finished......

New Drawing of a Long Tailed Tit, I know my sister likes these so I hope she's happy with this drawing.. drawn on Mellotex approx 13 x 6 inches.
As you can see from the second pic I've added a leaf as I think this balances the drawing, it hasnt photographed very well so sorry for that...

Just to show that I have been at the drawing board since Christmas, here is a new piece as yet untitled, still a bit to do on this as there will be more barbed wire and grass,to the right and left hand side. I have included a close up as I often get asked for these shots, hope you like it so far....
