The Little Story

Hard to miss! The shiny black of some birds was challenging for me to reproduce until I discovered “” paper. Sometimes I combine it with a duller black to accentuate the sheen, but in this case, I used the background papers to create that contrast. In life, the difference between the glossy black and the winter-spent marsh makes your eye go right to the bird. In case you still need help finding him, he’ll flash his red and yellow epaulets and scold you: chak, chak, chak!
