Full time artist and illustrator, specialising in realistic images in a range of mediums, but particularly favouring coloured pencils.
Knowing the size and amount of detail you put into it, makes an old man’s eyes and fingers just plain hurt……LOL Beautiful textures in both the bird and the perch.
Thank you Jim – you would have laughed if you saw me drawing it – magnifying glass held in one hand, coloured pencils in the other and still I couldn’t really see what I was doing. Definitely getting harder to do the miniatures now LOL!!! :)

Lots of detail…must have been a lot of work….Excellent !
Thank you so much Ellen – I’m so glad you like it and actually I think this one only took about a day – it wasn’t too bad at all :)
KAREN!!!! This is AWESOME!!!! Please don’t keep it near a picture of a cat, it would be unsafe.
Ha Ha Phillip – the cats would have a field day!!! Thank you heaps and I’m thrilled you like it!!! :)
sigh…I just love these colors…
Most scratchbord artists leave the colour out, but I’m such a sucker for colour I just had to add it back in again :)
Beautiful work, gorgeous, colorful bird! Nice detail and light.
