That is excellent! Could you tell me what kind of color pencils you are using? I have never managed to get such intense colors with color pencil. Does the type of paper make a difference?

Thank you! Don't draw birds very often (usually cats, dogs, horses) so this is a fun way to get me motivated to practice. I use Prismacolor, Faber Castell Polychromos and Caran d'Ache Luminance pencils. (Some women buy shoes, I buy art supplies. Lol! Dick Blick has good prices and sales.) I drew this on Strathmore Color Pencil paper, 400 series, medium surface. I also use Gamsol odorless mineral spirits with a brush to blend the colors when I don't want the tooth of the paper to show.

Thank you very much! You should teach a class!
