I wasn't happy with my last watercolor of the Piping Plovers. I've reworked it once again but am not posting it now. Instead I started a new pastel and charcoal drawing of the same subject. I'm a little more confident in my abilities in charcoal, and to a lesser degree pastel, than I am in watercolor.
I'm including the first two versions of the drawing. I'm fairly confident that by the time I'm finished I'll be happy with the work.
