Turnstones-Hillhead Harbour 8"x16"

drawing completed today.I'm really pleased with the end result as i feel ive managed to get down on paper my observations from early on this year.In and around Hillhead and Titchfield haven the turnstones can always be found scurrying around foraging for food.they are a great subject to tackle as they seem completely un-fazed by close human contact allowing some lovely close views and in turn some very detailed images.

Excellent Clive. Some great textures in here. Makes me want to draw a chain - can't imagine if I did that a drawing of just a chain would sell though!!

Beautiful work! I agree with Nolan, the texture are great and I also love the chain. Great composition.

nolon and angie thankyou both very much.ive been wanting to incorporate some man made textures into a piece for ages and when i saw this chain in the harbour i knew immediately how to make it work and so i'm really pleased that you both feel that it did

The chain really adds an extra dimension to another great piece. Thumbs up from over here :D

Hello, Clive! Lately I do not have much time to visit the sites of other artist friends. Your recent works are truly amazing. Congratulations. I will have to devote to something else! I allowed myself to add a link to your blog from mine. I hope you do not mind. Greetings
