Thank you, All for your comments!

Jillh;  Does hot press have different properties than the regular
        140 lb. watercolour paper?

ncwren;   I'll give Lillian's ironing technique a go!!!  Thanks for the tip.

Congratulations May Lynn. . . .  your Flicker is beautiful and looks like he is very proud to be one of the features on the Newsletter. . .you should be too!!!!
I miss all the Flickers that used to come to our feeder in BC. We get one or two here in NS at the feeder and I make sure there is plenty of suet out for them.
 
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

I thought for a minute that it was in pencil!  You are really getting those mid tones in nicely with the pen!  Great work Cyril.  :clap:

Cyril,

Your Northern Flicker is wonderfully done.  The eye looks so real.  All the little spots are so well blended into the feathers!

Fabulous!
