I wasn't going to post these, but I'm having computer problems, scanner problems, network problems... so here are some bird sketches that I did on a Joburg Sketchers trip to the Montecasino Bird Gardens back in October because they're here, on this computer. A hot steamy day, it was lovely to mosey around the park splashing paint around. I was hoping for much greater results, but these dots and dashes were the results of much squinting and concentration!
While I was waiting for sketchers to arrive I sketched some little ducks, and then the schoolmasterly maribou storks. They are so morose and unattractive, you just have to love them!
Brown pelicans, a lonely looking kookaburra and two shades of flamingo - sorry about the grey images, so hard to pick up the watercolour washes if I whiten the paper. Wish I had my old scanner back!
