"One for sorrow..."

This weeks theme at The Butterfly Effect is BIRDS
I thought I'd keep it simple and just draw a bird...but the theme for the new Game Challenge is CHESS, which requires you to use just black and white...so
MAGPIE :D
...but it looked a bit lonely, "one for sorrow" as the rhyme says.
and that's why I doodled around it :D

All worked in white pencil on black card :D
Enjoy :D XXX

    1. Abstract is something that really alludes me Natasha...and I struggle with whimsical too :D I think it's because I have a keen eye for detail. :D XXX
