Artwork: Bicknell’s Thrush in Prismacolor pencil

Drawing in Prismacolor pencils, in honor of my 194th life list bird. I didn’t think the drawing was finished when I walked out of the room to get a gray pencil, but when I returned, the drawing just worked in a way that forbade any further refinement. The way the edges blur and the spots fade away gives the same impression I had when I saw the elusive bird itself, slowly picking its way through the underbrush, never fully revealed.
