Ruffed Grouse

It is another hot and humid day with the actual temperature reaching a high of 81F (27.2C) feels like 97F (36.1C).

I didn't feel like doing too much outside so I worked on this drawing of a Ruffed Grouse that I had started last year (see post on 26 December 2014).

Fortunately, I had a lot of reference photographs to get the detail correct on the grouse.

One thing I learned was that if the band on the tail of a Ruffed Grouse is unbroken it is a male.

This original 9" x 12" graphite pencil drawing when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $75.00.
