Low Flyer

This time of year we have a migration of geese, ducks, and swans through our area. This is the first time I attempted a project in pyrography like this Mallard Drake. It was a woodburning with a variable temperature tool and a writing tip on basswood. I burned in curved lines, dash strokes. dots, and scrubby lines. The colored work was with watercolor pencils. I used pencil kit so the colors might not be exactly right. Some area's have several color layers.Temperature control and line techniques take a lot of practice.
