#018 The Two-tailed Wrentit

Confession is good for the soul. I drew this little wrentit for my blog and inked too soon. Someone must have been playing pin-the-tail-on-the- donkey and put the tail in the wrong place.

But isn’t scanning wonderful. I added the new tail, painted, scanned and then, on the computer, erased the errant tail.

Oh, I just love the delicate line work on this beautiful little guy! Even the branch is full of life! I need to come take computer lessons from you, apparently--sounds like it would save a lot of grief for me ; )!

LOL, funny about the tail but what a beauty this little guy is.

Oh my gosh....this is gorgeous, and how cool that you were able to use technology to perfect it. I love how you ink and then fill in with watercolor. What size pen are you using? It looks to be a super fine point. I used to do lots of ink pointillism drawings (80s), but my pen nibs are nonfunctional now. I think I'd like to try it again.

Sweet portrait~
the details in your lines are wonderful and fun to hear how you were able to change this.
