This little pencil drawing has gone some way to keeping me sane - I've put a considerable amount of hours into it, but it is very slow progress. Nearing the finish line now, just the left-hand greenery to do. I'm using Derwent Coloursoft pencils - lovely selection of colours, but do need a lot of repeated going over to get the depth of colour I am after. Not a problem, in fact quite soothing! I did discover that I can scrape back the applied colour with a sharp blade to reveal the first colour used - terrific for detail on the shiny feathers.
