Sydni in Charcoal

Charcoal drawing, Arches 140# Hot Press, 11 x 15.  This is my first attempt at drawing with Charcoal.  Unlike watercolors, Charcoal can be very messy.  I have a lot to learn and a long way to go.

The subject is Sydni, my 14 year old Congo African Grey parrot and the love of my life.  I posted a watercolor of Sydni last week and decided to try his portrait in Charcoal.  I look forward  to your constructive comments and critiques…..Sandy
