Angel and Duckling

This is my second attempt using my pencils and mineral spirits.  I am enjoying learning something new.  This image is by Morgan Fitzsimons.  I have quite an extensive collection of her images. I find most of her images quite challenging and I enjoy that.  I colored it with Prismacolor pencils.  The paper is from K & Company. The first time I attempted this image I ended up putting it in the circular file.  I like this one better.
