I think you gave Nick a wonderful response on his own thread Arthur. AND what a beautiful page of sketches you've done on the Pectoral.

Who's been a busy boy then?! Pec sand is a beauty and, like others, the Hedgie is a favourite amongst a raft of excellent stuff. Mike

Absolutely love the Pectoral Sandpiper. The Dunnock and Common Pheasant (especially the angle on it) are lovely, too.

Love 'em both - but I've got to say that graphite work is among the very best. Superb!

Have to agree with Tim. There is a real richness to the latter.

nice studies, I love the canada greylag hybrid (or is it barnacle?), I think they're the best looking mongrel geese in the world. The barnacle is pretty sharp too.

Beautiful! The sketches are lovely, and so is the painting. Every time I come close to a diver, it dives and surfaces two miles further away. You were lucky with this one!

Beautiful Arthur. You and Tim are doing a wonderful job with them. I've always had the hardest time with their American counterparts. But they should still be abundant here too so I hope to go out and find a few to sketch at some point today. We once had one overwinter in the garden but it's been years since we've seen one here for more than a day.
