Lots and Lots of Seabirds #51


Common murres and chick:

I spent a lovely long day field sketching under less than ideal conditions at Yaquina Head, on the Oregon coast, a little over a week ago. The wind was trying to tear the paper right out of my sketchbook, but then I got smart and turned the sketchbook upside down so the wind was hitting the spine. Sketched with my trusty Pelikan pen and water brush.

For more about that wonderful day, please go to my blog (see link to my name on the left side of this page).

Great dynamics Elva. I love to see how energy is flowing between these birds to the viewer. Thanks, Irina

Sounds like a great day with you and your trusty pen. Love the composition of this one.

I love this composition too. I have been following your technique closely, and it has encouraged me to use a pen too!
