This was drawn from a photograph that I took of a heron on a pond in South Carolina.
The background had to be filled in so that I could etch out some of the white feathers on the bird.
I used an eraser almost as much as a pencil.
Note from Kerry:
Your drawing of the lone Heron is absolutely wonderful! Great work!
Thanks for sharing that you used your eraser a lot because that information helps beginner artists understand all the tools that we have at our disposal to achieve so many different effects.
I really like your drawing, it's very well done, thank you.
