Loredana's Cockatoo


8 x 10 - 70lb acid free Strathmore art paper - December 2005

The ref pic was from Loredana. I really liked it and asked her permission to draw her cockatoo.

I found all the white in the cockatoo a real challenge. I am still not happy with it, but I am afraid I will mess it up if I work it any more. I am going to let it sit for a few days before spraying it with fixative, just in case.
