My ink, pastel and graphite drawing of a great egret, or heron, spreading its wings. I made the ink by grinding a Chinese ink stick and mixing it with water to get different dilutions, then applied it with a calligraphy brush. I smudged in some graphite and added iridescent blue pastel to represent light and shadows.
