partridge update

Still struggling to get enough time in the studio over the last couple of days to make any significant progress on this piece,although i'm hopeful of being able to crack on with it for the rest of this week.The plumage of these birds is extremely complex and very cryptic and not the easiest to portray,but it's coming along slowly.As you can see i'm also going to have to re-layer the background to darken it a little as i have done around the partridge head,here i have just added another layer of HB grade pencil,so there are now four layers,two of H grade and two of HB grade pencil.Better to have to add another layer at this stage than to have gone in too heavy at the outset!.
