I’m never happy with these, I can’t really catch much of that clean white soaring feeling. Nothing compares to being out on the snow and having these guys fly right over you, hearing their honks and the sound of their powerful wings. Oh well, that’s art for you, nevr happy, just keep trying.

  1. I like the energy in the marks made with the …end of the brush handle? It would be a big challenge to render these birds in a nearly white environment.

    • Thanks, Al. The drawings are both made with pencil on Yupo, it’s very smooth and I think plastic. It’s the same challenge as with other things, look for the dark areas, look for the lights. But yes, I find the majesty of these great birds impossible to convey.
