Well here it is FINALLY!!!
My first piece of 2013!
This is done with my trusty Prismacolor colored pencils and created on Strathmore's 500 series hot press watercolor paper. I really liked this paper and would recommend it to anyone doing colored pencil work. It's smoother than regular watercolor paper and held up well against my punishment
I used a free desktop background that I found using Google search for the reference of this piece. It was portrait oriented and I made it landscape which meant doing more background for the piece and creating the tail for the robin. I'm framing it today in a frame that I hand made just for this picture. If anyone's interested I might get a shot of the framed piece and post it.
Thanks for looking at my artwork and leaving a comment if you're motivated to do so... comments always encourage me!
