Thanks Tim, Ken, John, Colleen and Phil! Up to now the ducks are just a thumbnail. Perhaps I should give it a try ... *think*

I found a raven opposite my window, enjoying the wind and the sun...

That's a very classy piece of drawing, Ulrike - great combination of posture, textures and sensitivity. Gorgeous.

I particularly like the way that the ravens head detail is hidden in shadow...very evocative...[great sculptural quality too]...

Hello again...

haven't painted or sketched birds for some time, but my dad has made me come back to our friends because he observed a stork and took photos...

This sketch is just 15 x 15cm.

Always loving birds,
Ulrike O:-)

Both the stork and the tit are very well done! I like the palette you've used and how you've handled the background as well.

I hope you like them, too.

See you soon,

A very nice collection. I prefer the first I think but I find something admirable in all of them.
