After a few days away, I’ve made a little progress on the Pileated Woodpecker portrait. Some small adjustments on the primaries, and some base color shading. I haven’t drawn very many birds in flight, and I’m considering how to show movement in the subject. I anticipate softening the outline of the primaries to suggest rapid motion. It’s a little new for me, but I’m looking forward to the challenge. More to come.
