For the birds

Another Sketchbook Skool assignment - I didn't particularly like this class. I didn't feel the teacher covered the brief very well. Some of the teachers just show us their sketchbooks, their art supplies, and then do a quick drawing, and they call that a lesson, which is a bit frustrating. Plus I'm not that interested in birds. I drew these from old photographs we had taken a few years back.  The crows were photographed at Bray seafront, always a good spot - they are attracted by the presence of fish and chips establishments on the promenade. The other bird, I honestly can't say I remember where or when that photograph was taken, and my pencil drawing will not help in identifying what it is.


  1. I really like the bird sketches. Nice sense of swoop. C

    1. Thanks Cathy! I really struggled with these sketches.
