Thanks Tim, It's nice to see so many people take an interest in what you are trying to acheive.

A rough sketch of a Pere. I remember one like this flying low along the Beach at Titchwell into a gale. could be interesting.

I really enjoy looking at your pictures. They are so very detailed and brilliant.
Oh well... I think I still have to struggle a bit until I am as skilled as you are .

Nice sketches Arthur, the egrets are particularly good. And I really like that blackie, just as we see 'em!

the blackbird is very dynamic and the perspective and point of view is superb. I'm also particularly fond of the wind blown egret, an excellent capture of the moment.

Hi Nick good yo have you about the place again.

Working the Pere up so I have a colour sketch for ref.
This is listening to young Tim's (He is young compared to me) advice, before I have a go at making a mess with oils .

Very nice feather detail there Arthur but I'm thinking that the bill is maybe a bit heavy?

Plenty of movement here, Arthur. Are you going to commit to oils?
All the best - Young Tim!

I will certainly give it a go Tim. still have to refine the Pere, it's a bit top heavy and sort out the feet better

yes, that's an improvement. This is a very moody piece, makes me think of autumn looming (lovely sunny day here)

I actually like them both, but the last one has more manace to it, moodier and dynamic. Super work arthur.

looking good Arthur. Remember with oils you will have the time
to pull it around and make any changes you need.
so much more forgiving than Watercolour. well IMO.

relax with it , it will come on beautifully

Starting to bring on the feathers.

Hello aires and welcome to BF. I usually take a photo or scan the image in. I see Alan has already told you how to upload it on your thread. Looking forward to seeing some of your work.
