Brandt’s Cormorant portrait in colored pencil, completed. Surprising little black used in this apparently black bird. Lots of grays, browns and whites….
Preliminary lines for a Brandt’s Cormorant portrait. It’s another bird without much color—maybe a little brown, buff and blue when it’s all done… This one is especially fitting after recent pelagic trips out of Half Moon Bay and Monterey Bay.
Just playing around with the Brandt’s Cormorant head and neck.
