Sooty Grouse – Dendragapus fuliginosus

Medium: Ink on Clayboard (Scratchboard).

Size: 8″ x 10″

Date Completed: October 2010.

Other Information: After over a year of neglect I finally finished this piece of a female Sooty Grouse (Dendragapus fuliginosus). Three summers ago I happened upon her and her chicks in the North Cascades National Park. I snapped a few photos while she examined me warily. They continued on their way and I knew I wanted to tackle the detail and the attitude of that beautiful feathered mother.
