Greylag geese progress

At last i've managed to complete the background to this piece,its taken a while,a combination of the complexity of the drawing and life getting in the way.It's a relief to be able to make a start on the feathering on the goose to the left hand side of the picture,ive already loosely sketched in the feathers and just like the pebbles in the background its a case of completing it feather by feather!.i'm completing each feather in the same way as i approach most subjects that is by layering,starting with a layer of H grade pencil and working up grade by grade until i reach the 2B which is about the darkest grade i'll need.
