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.

If you’d like to hear what they sound like click here.
