While I’m practicing with colored pencils and adapting to a new medium, why not do a drawing of a colorful bird? I found quite a few nice pictures of kingfishers for reference. I think I might also do a drawing of a parrot in the future. It would be a pity to draw these colorful birds in graphite, though sometimes it can be a good practice to push yourself and to use a wide range of value and try to render the richness of colors using only several graphite pencils.
If you like my work, check out my Facebook page for all of the drawings. If you’re interested in commissioning a piece or buying an existing one, it’s best to contact me through Facebook or email.
