Spotted Pardalote

by Erica Lyn Schmidt

This charcoal drawing was made with both pencils and powdered charcoal, using erasers to draw in the lighter details. I chose to render this colorful bird in black and white to spotlight the contrast in its pattern and the negative space around him.

This piece was created for a BirdWhisperer Project monthly challenge.
