First post for 2013. That means to meet my average I only need one more for the year! Yeah OK I’m a slack blogger. I had a few days off over the Christmas/New Year period and found myself itching to take out my pencils and draw something. So I drew a photo of a goldfinch I’d taken in my front lawn a few months ago. I used my 20+ year old Derwent Studio pencils, some Derwent Artists colours, a few Derwent Drawing colours (these are something very special), and four Faber Castell Polychromos colours. I’m fairly pleased with the results, given I’ve barely drawn a thing for maybe more than 16 years. I have a number of other birdy photos I’d like to draw, but I predict these will take a while since the work year already pounced upon me!
