'One of Edwin Cracknell's favourite finches is the colourful male Chaffinch. It's distinctive markings and powerful song make this little mechanical bird an attractive addition to any collection!'
I like drawing birds with bold markings so thought the male chaffinch would be a good choice for my next clockwork bird illustration. He's been on my 'to do list' for a while, so it's good to have him finished :)
After such a long gap since my last bird I'm on a roll now and am already half way through my next one! I'm just waiting for the paint to dry before I can scan it. Hopefully it should be finished in a day or two (if you want to see a sneak peek I posted a picture on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/HazelFisherCreations )
