Art: Frosty Acrobat by Artist Jackie K. Hixon
The white-breasted nuthatch is a common sight on trees in North American winters & this picture was inspired by watching one on a tree outside my window. It was done on Bristol board as my first project using Derwent Graphitint pencils, which are like regular pencils only with a touch of subtle color. The muted winter tones were perfect for seeing what the pencils were capable of. The bark was especially fun to do.
