This is a piece of work i had printed in the current issue of Yorkshire Birding and although i wasn't very happy with the outcome (at all) i have had some nice remarks made about the piece and once again reinforces my last post. Not only was this one of three Twite drawings i did before i was happy for it to go to print but was the quickest drawn and the least time consuming. I cant get my head around art all but love it, its addictive!
One of my main problems when drawing is knowing when to stop. There is a very fine line between getting something finished and ruining a piece of work. I am always told that the work people prefer is the work that is kept simple and simply answers the brief. The following drawings are good examples of where Ive been to heavy handed or tried adding lines that are not required. The beauty of keeping work like this is the fact i always have it there for reference and allows me to refine future work.
