Little Owl in progress

I started working on this Little Owl a few days ago. After getting off to a slow start it’s starting to feel like it’s getting somewhere now. As with my…

Tiger & Cub complete

The Tiger & Cub drawing is complete. This piece was done on A3 using pastel sticks and pastel pencils. It took longer than any other piece I’ve done before it….

Indian Rhinoceros
