So there seems to be a lot of ‘wet’ media so far… Ah well. This was done with a Pentel Pocket Brush that split on me, so I used the ‘snake’ tongue to my advantage for the feathery look!
As a wildlife biologist, I have a certain fondness for birds. The Red Breasted Nuthatch is something of a common sight here in southern Quebec (and North America in general, actually) and at ~4-5″ are tiny little things. Adorable!
