I am on a roll....

I just finished this piece yesterday as part of a swap - I have tried out new skills learnt in class with DJ Pettitt. I think I might have missed something as it sure didn't flow as easily as it did in class, or maybe it was more the fact that I had DJ right there to lend a helping hand. This bird image I have used is one drawn by DJ that she so kindly let us trace in class.
