Bald Eagle

Dear readers,

It would seem as if I’ve dropped off the planet in these past two months.  Despite the long break from blogging, I assure you that I have been busy creating artwork.  I have also been devoting a lot of time to building a website at last.

In honor of the 4th of July, I decided to share with you my newest drawing.  I haven’t drawn a bald eagle for years, and it has been on my to-do list for quite some time.  I don’t usually enjoy drawing birds, but I was so pleased by how much I enjoyed this drawing.  It made the process pure fun.

Bald Eagle

– 8×10 inch Ampersand scratchboard.

– I used mostly a #11 X-Acto Blade for this, and used two sizes of fiberglass brush to really whiten the light areas.  I also used Faber-Castel Pitt Artist pens for adding depth of value and also to correct mistakes.

Thank you for looking, and happy Independence Day!
