Not much time this week for painting, but I have been watching these birds settling in a tree along the road.
I particularly like their silhouettes against the grey skies. Each time I went past they flew off just as I got there, and I thought I would have to draw from them from memory. But I got lucky, when after waiting for a few minutes they all came back.
The sketchbook I made doesn't fit in my scanner if I use a double spread......I will have to bear this in mind when/if I make another.
The one question I ask myself is why that tree and not one of the many other trees along the road, they've been there for a week, I think they are migratory on their way somewhere?
