Today has been long, very long, with hours and hours of computer work. It’s tedious but very satisfying when you get through it. As a result I missed the daylight for painting, but this has advantages too… it’s a long time since I did any drawing 🙂

So I found a quirky picture of a White Faced Heron to practise with from the Paintmyphoto website, courtesy of Pauline from Canada. It turned out a little bit heavy, because I found shading the grey feathers tricky, but at least I found time and motivation to put pencil to paper today.
