It was nice to have time over the summer to do a bit of birdwatching. Gulls may be common and a ‘nuisance’ in towns, but they’re still handsome animals and fascinating to observe. These are lesser black-backed gulls, we also saw herring gulls and black-headed gulls.
As with the drawings in the previous post, these were done with a 6B Lyra graphite crayon. It felt comfortable and fast to use and readily brought out the texture of the sketchbook paper.
