Hey everyone. It’s been a little while since I last posted and wow has the world changed in that short space of time. For myself, I had just moved house and started work again for the summer… and then I got symptoms of Covid-19. I’ve been ill for the last couple of weeks with it and, I’ll be honest, it got scary at points, but I seem to have nearly recovered now.
I work as an ornithologist in the summer. It’s not a job you can do from home but it’s certainly inspirational for me as an artist. I drew and painted this great crested grebe when I was beginning to feel better. Pencil and watercolour on cartridge paper.
These are some sketches of other grebes I might still add colour to later.
Looking forward to getting back out in the fresh air and sunshine, and seeing some real birds again.
Stay safe everyone, and if you’ve been making any lockdown art feel free to tell me about it and post links in the comments.
