I've been leaning toward graphite lately simply because it highlights her talent for feather detail.

Also I love her small birds (graphite as well). I think she uses finches but could just as well be sparrows I guess.

She uses wrens frequently.

We went back and forth but decided we liked her graphite work a little more for what we had done.

Nice score Caleb :clap:

She does use wrens a bit. Her wrens with keys are a series I think. A great one.

However my favorite of her small birds is a finch I think. 35mm has one in his sketchbook from what I remember.

My commission one day might have something to do with them. Who knows. Hard to make up our mind.
