Avocet study 11.5"x5.75"


This drawing is now complete.The foreground has been layered using every grade of pencil from H thru to B grade,details have then been added using a 2B pencil.In this instance the details have been added by scribbling and directional strokes rather than my usual circulism method as i'm not overly worried about acheiving a high level of detail in this area rather the 'impression' of detail.This drawing will join my previous egret image at my forthcoming exhibition at Titchfield Haven.

This is so nice! You've depicted the water and shoreline beautifully. The bird - well, he's perfect! I as well appreciate great composition and this definitely has that. This is superb.

thankyou very much angie,i have two very different elements to my drawings,the first is the slightly more commercial animal work(big game etc) and the other is my particular favourite,although not so popular depictions of my local birdlife here on the estuary and shoreline of south hampshire
