These are my most recently completed drawings that I plan to put on exhibit at our local fair that's coming up the end of Sept. (I think we need a non-horse art forum. :D)

I drew this from a photo of one of our spring ducklings:

Very very nice!!! I love the detail and the shading...especially on the duck. How did you have the patience to draw the straw that it's sitting on though?

Thanks Charlicata! The straw was definitely a challenge and took forever. Honestly, I posted WIP (work in progress) photos on an art forum I belong to and the members there kept me going. Really, if it hadn't been for them I may have abandoned it and I'm glad I stuck it out. It was a nice lesson for me. :)

May I ask, what art forum was that? I'm only a member of Deviantart. ^^

Awesome! I love how much detail you put into that duck!

I love the duck & the detail you put into the straw ;) i tend to lose my patience with little things like that (even though they make it look alot better when it's finished!). One of the reasons i put a hold on drawing to paint lol

Thank you for the kind words everyone!

I usually do, too! Most of my drawings just have a shadow under them to keep them from looking like they're floating in the air, but I'm making myself go outside my comfort zone. :)
