"Light Sussex Hen"
Size approx 11.5x15.5"
Here is the last week's work on this chicken.  This one will be going to the second of the exhibitions in a couple of weeks time at Talents Fine Art Gallery in Malton.  The RHS Harlow Carr Art Exhibition began today, so hopefully they had a busy start (I wasn't there today)

Highland Cow

'Highland Cow'
Size approx 15.5x11.5"
A relatively quick one here.  I've touched on this technique in a few earlier posts, but with the exception of the horns and nose area, the entire drawing is all created with tissue and erasers.  Onto a chicken now!

Finally finished this feathery Red Kite.  
No time to rest though, onto the next and prep for Sunday's North Yorkshire County Show.

Pheasant completed...maybe!

"Strutting Pheasant"
Size approx 17x11.5"
I must admit, although, I had finished this drawing, I have great urges to add a few tall blades of grass to it. I'm not sure why as this was the look I was going for from the start, but i've scribbled over a print of the drawing and I feel it may just add something extra to it...or ruin it completely!  I may have to sleep on it.

Red Grouse complete

'Red Grouse'
Image size 10.5"x14"
I thought i'd need to tinker with this one a little.  There's probably no difference between this post and the last (especially at this scale), but thought i'd add the actual finished piece. 

And just to make this post a little more worthwhile, here is a snippet of the next game bird.  I'm definitely going to be taking a break from small feathers after these two!

Red Grouse

Here is the weekend's work.  I think this one is finished, but I feel I need a day or two to decide.  If there isn't a further update, here is 'Red Grouse', image size approx 10.5"x14".  If there is an update, here is where I am so far with the grouse.  We'll see...
