Visual interest can be found in the plainest of areas; it doesn't take a lot of information to arrange visual tension if you celebrate conflicting inclinations... when doing so try to embrace the emptiness.

Bird Shots™

ROOSTER ...2
Pencil, ink and preliminary color.  Value structure to be manipulated and will try to maintain surface interest here on this bird.  On a more philosophical note, I was hoping to discover why if roosters will crow at night, and crows will roost at night, why these two birds were awarded the name they have, and not the other way around.
... I find I am as frustrated as when I began this project.
