Black-necked stilt - charcoal drawing

Black-necked stilt at lagoon

Vine charcoal sketch
18" x 24"

The problem area for me on this drawing was the water. After I had randomly draw a few of the diagonal ripple lines, I realized the alignment and direction was important to making the water appear as a flat plane.
