Keys are so incredibly symbolic, I definitely have my own thoughts and feelings about why my birds hold keys, but I love the idea of someone owning my work and finding there own symbolism in it. This is the first of a small series of Wrens I'm working on and is unavailable for purchase. (Graphite, colour pencil, liquid metal gold)

This is the first colour layer over a raw umber underpainting. I found that first layer incredible help in just focusing on the shadows and highlights as well as the pattern direction of the feathers, definitely something I would recommend especially with a more complicated piece.
