Diver Doodles

Pencil, pen and wash on cartridge paper. More of the kind of stuff I used to never show.

Divers are gorgeous birds I got to know very well during my time living on the north coast of Scotland. One of my favourite bird watching memories is the first time I was out in a quiet vast expanse of peatland one chilly morning and heard a black throated diver calling in the distance. Sent a shiver of joy right through me.

  1. Those are excellent! Divers are amongst my favourite birds as well, and that sound – once heard never forgotten. Glad you’ve started showing these sketches now – they deserve to be seen πŸ™‚
