Golden Eagle study progress

Working on the feather detail on the eagles head today.This is by far the most difficult part of this particular picture especially describing the smaller feathers around the throat and ear coverts.As usual i'm using layering initially and then making more direct marks using B and 2B grades of pencil.In the photo you can see that the throat feather depiction is almost complete and the ear coverts have a couple of layers of pencil applied.
