I photographed the Bluebird on Teasel this spring and did the sketch work in Topaz Impression. 

Please click on image to view with dark surrounds. Thank you for viewing.

Nikon D500, Nikkor 500mm +1.4x, f/8 @ 1/400, ISO 2500.

This is glorious Ron. Subtle interplays of light and shade, great pose and a feel of done by the hand of man. Top drawer! Congrats on the EP too Ron!
Make your life spectacular!

I would not have known this was not a pencil sketch. Perfectly done.

Superb, Ron! Beautiful tones and textures-the teasel is especially suited for this kind of work too- great choice. (Of course I love the bluebird too). :)
