In order for me to easily find and answer queries about this Lesson I will appreciate it if everyone will keep these  to this specific Lesson Posting only. This will also be of benefit to you as well in the future.  Thanks

I was unable to find a template for this lesson, therefore, I took Dennis' advice and went to Morgfile.

I had to modify it a little to try and match the lessons duck, but, I soldiered on.  A great learning experience for me to download a file from Morgfile. ( a first)

After, 3 attempts at the pen and ink work I decided to take a break and upload this one to PB.  I must say it is definitely what I would call an ATTEMPT.   

Here it is:
                 


I have a long way to go with Pen & Ink, it is challenging for sure but,
 it keeps the wheel turning in the  old brain.

This lesson was very timely because where we live the property used to be an audubon and each year ducks hang out in our swimming pool waiting for the female to give birth to the babies...which then need to be gathered and collected by animal control so they don't drown. The ducks have just arrived so this was the perfect picture to create!

Have to say Ryan is really enjoying this series on birds. :) He is really looking forward to doing the Northern Flicker later this week but is reasonably happy with his version of the duck. Says this is a bit dark because he didnt have the same type pen Dennis was using and just used his lightest...
