Lovely Ray  :clap: :clap: :clap: I used to do a lot of this type of drawing back in school. You're getting some very nice textures on the tree and in the feathers. Well done! Can't wait to see what happens next!  :yippee:
Cheers, Val

Dear Ray3
This lone woodpecker looks a little well fed.  The ones I see in the woods around our house on Canada's West Coast  work hard to find food and look a lot slimmer than yours. The British diet must be richer than ours.
