I visited the Raptor Foundation a couple of days ago (dodging the downpours and sweltering in the very hot sunny intervals...). Here are a few sketches.
All done with Faber-Castell Pitt pens. Owls are great models for the most part - they stay fairly still! I'll be going back soon to practise some more, and I'll try to draw some of the other raptors. It's a great way to spend an afternoon :-)
...and welcome to Sharon's Pics! Painting, drawing and printmaking inspired by the natural world is my thing - I love the challenge and it's great to see the subjects coming to life on the paper or canvas. I never get bored of it.
I also have another blog, Cambridgeshire nature notes, where you'll find drawings, sketches, studies, photos and general rambling on about the natural world as I find it...
