This post from Robin at Robin’s Robins really caught my eye a couple of weeks ago, and I finally found a moment to quickly sketch this pair of mallards. Aren’t they sweet?
This was done in 2B graphite with a touch of Derwent Graphitint pencil added. I’m finding I like those Graphitint pencils as much to simply draw with as when they are activated with water. (They are basically water-soluble graphite pencil with a touch of color in each.) The tones are muted, so they’re particularly suited to nature and landscape work. Do check out Robin’s blog. He takes lots of wonderful bird photos, and I think you’ll really enjoy them!
I don’t have as much time for blogging as busy season cranks up, so if I’m not in here daily posting, I didn’t disappear, and won’t be away for long. Take care and enjoy your Wednesday. Quacks and peace to you.
