"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Red kites

More images from yesterdays trip into Wharfedale. Driving down Lower Wharfedale, this young Kite was seen beside the road from Arthington to Weardley. Sketched with my usual Rotring Art Pen and tinted with Derwent Watercolour Pencil. Not a medium I use very often.
