Coloured Pencil Stoat Finished

I've finished my stoat, I like the effect but it will be a while before I want to use French Grey pencils again.

I had a first for my garden birds today, a small flock of Redpolls. I've never even seen them locally so was delighted when I spotted them in my Silver Birch.

It's not a good photograph because the light is poor and they were right at the back of the garden, but you can see the red forehead.

I've started a graphite Woodpecker and a watercolour Golden Eagle which I'll share when I'm further along.

Gayle, the stoat is fantastic! I adore the rocks and frosted bracken then the spot of colour. Gorgeous. I must put up that birdfeeder again and attract some new reference material!

Excellent piece, Gayle. Love the contrast between the stoat and the frosty backdrop.
