Sometimes pieces almost create themselves and that was the case with this drawing. I am currently covering cross-hatching, stippling and modeling techniques with my beginning students so I used this piece as a demonstration. I wanted them to see how I could shade and create the different values in the eagles' flat wings using hatching and cross-hatching.
This is one of the new pieces I introduced at the show this past weekend. It still doesn't have an owner. I hope someone will admire it enough to take it home.
