Lovely Linda, I particularly like your treatment of the background autumn trees.

Thanks Val, that's the Inktense pencils, a light blend of black, bark, green and tan with a wash over them all 😀

Lovely image of a bird we see only occasionally. I too like the background, and you description of how you did it.

Lovely -background and twig are super

Many thanks Lewis and Michael, I've only seen the nuthatch once, on the golf course a number of years ago now, gorgeous little birds 😀

Beautifully painted.

Thank you Heather and Gudrun, I really appreciate your comments 😀

It’s so good , beautifully painted.

Gorgeous Linda. Lovely layers of colour adding the depth of feather, like the stump he’s perched onto.

Lovely portrait and love the background setting

Beautiful Linda so alert

Thank you Dawn, Paul, Fiona, Ceri and Dennis, your comments are so appreciated, Linda 😀

Very good and the background and the "stump" are subdued and effective.

Thank you Richard, I didn't want to take away the delicate colours of the bird so kept it soft 😀
