  • Our first family of mergansers have emerged from their nest box.

  • Playing around with anatomy again. This sketch was about 50 minutes in Procreate 🎨

  • Playing with the MaxPack watercolor brush pack for Procreate. No idea what this is. Stream of consciousness doodling. 🎨

  • Started this snow leopard today. Graphite 3” by 5”.

  • I did this as part of a live drawing on Instagram. I will be doing a few more over the coming days.

  • Finished the puffin. Some challenging bits on this one. Graphgear 1000 .3 mm 2B and 2H pencils. Should I draw a larger more detailed version? Think I will.

  • Struggling with the feet on this one. In this scan I just erased part of the feet. Thought about putting the puffin in boots to make easier. ;-) More to come on this study 🎨
