Great Spotted Woodpecker Painting

I'm working on the duckling but started this one as well.
It's a Great Spotted Woodpecker and it was perched on one of my Silver Birch trees when I photographed it.
The size is 10 x 6 and I'm using coloured pencil and watercolour on Arches hot press paper.
I'm thinking about very lightly drawing a couple of trees in the background but I'm not sure that would work. I'll try it in photoshop first.

Isn't photoshop great. to be able to try things out befor we put brush or pencil to paper can be a life saver. I look at digital equipment as part of my tools.

Now we have two wonderful paintings to look forward to.
