Bird, 2013


Next in this series

I am no twitcher, but I do love the concept of birds and have enjoyed drawing them in museums more than any other creature. I have even imagined having a stuffed one under a Victorian glass dome. It would have to be in movement. Bizarre!

I asked a bird watcher friend if she could say anything about this drawing expecting some vague reply. She wrote, ‘I am almost certain that it’s a guillemot. You do sometimes get them in museums.’
