This beautiful pen & ink drawing is entitled 'Nuthatch' and is the work of talented Cathy at One Pink Goose. Click to enlarge to appreciate the detail and amount of work that has gone into this exquisite piece of work. I love everything about it, from the intricacy of composition and subtlety of contrasting tones to the range of marks used and subject matter. I will treasure this work of art always, thank you so much, Cathy. x
