A Drawing A Day – Week 40

There was much interest last week in Mabel, so I have cropped the photo and put the enlargement in this week.  She is about 12 inches tall I guess and this is her regular daytime roost.

Things must be settling down as I am finding more time for drawing which is good, I am also finding that I would like to do more time intensive stuff – maybe larger drawings or more detailed or pictures that take more than a couple of hours to complete.  But it will have to wait…..

A Drawing A Day – Week 39

In our old place when we walked we became accustomed to Buzzards shrieking overhead and looked forward to seeing ‘our’ Buzzard who sometimes came very close.  Now we have moved into town we have a new bird friend to enjoy.

Meet Mabel the resident Tawny Owl who lives in this tree, she can be spotted most mornings looking down on us all as we go about our business.  The grass where everyone stops to look has worn away and she is a local celebrity.  I believe she has reared chicks for the past two years.
