1) a bad photo of the book (note use of masking tape, cloth tape, velcro bits etc, very professional!
2) and 3) a couple of "old" sketches done in the book back in September, a local river mouth / beach
3) and 4) done this morning at another local beach...did these sitting in the car, a seagull sat outside for a while hoping I would throw him something to eat. Using a limited palette of ultra. blue and burnt sienna, plus a small amount of some orange-red hue for the bird's bill. Lots more practice required with moving wildlife I think, i'm having enough trouble capturing the landscape.
