Swamp Sparrow (completed)

Image

The Swamp Sparrow is finished, I think… The pose was challenging—an undertail, rear 3/4 view. I loved layering the base colors however, adding dark patterns with deeper browns and reds, and feather details with a No.2 pencil. Unexpected changes since yesterday were considerable darkening the face, chest and flanks based on photos of the actual bird.
