Compositional Sketches, December 2007

Brent Geese and Black Tailed Godwits

Pintail and Lapwing

Pintail Drakes


Little Egrets

Spent a week in Dublin and on my return spent a few days working on these compositional sketches with a view to some paintings. The site was Bull Island, a wonderful place to draw birds, lagoos are teeming with wader and wildfowl in winter. The evening light made a big impression on me, a range of purples, apricot and peach tones bouncing of the mudflats and channels gave some wonderful colour to these scenes, hope to get these done in the next few months...
