|Ringed Plovers, Newhaven Tide Mills, (not from scotland but I had the pics to hand so did my best!) |
Personally I prefer the left-hand one.
|Common Gull, Longniddry|
|Oystercatchers, Longniddry, a collection from all the different photos I took of these.|
|Waxwings, Loch of Kinnordy RSPB. My favs out of all of these!|
|Black-headed Gull, Loch Leven. More of a warm up before I sketched some of the more impressive birds today|
|Whooper Swans, Loch Leven. These are my second favourites after the Waxwings!|
|Female Shoveler, Loch of Kinnordy RSPB. In a way she was nicer than the |
dazzling males, her subtle orangey-brown hues go well with the season. The bottom picture shows her
|Cormorant, Threpmuir Reservoir. A bird i had previously overlooked|
for sketching potential, but they are fun to draw and a nice challenge to
make look real.
|Mute Swans, Musselburgh Lagoons. By now I was fairly knackered and realised |
I wasn't doing quite so well any more!
|And, finally, I did a quick, '15-minute flash' of one of the Longniddry Oystercatchers.|
The same bird as the bottom right of pic. no 3, copied from that little sketch.
