    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!!! :)

    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 :)
