Bird In Hand

Bird In Hand
I've been fortunate for photographer Keith Saint to allow me to use any of his photographs for reference for paintings or drawings. I created this pencil drawing (A3 on Bristol board) from one of his shots recently. Usually I try to alter photographs or add to them to make the finished picture a bit more my own, but this one seemed to be a perfect composition and I really couldn't see a way of changing it or improving on it. So it is quite faithful to the original photograph. But I'm pleased with it and it was very popular at the recent little show I did in Southwold.

That is beautiful! I adore the detail and the composition - I agree, nothing needed changing or added. It's perfect! :)
