Two different images, the quiet attitude of the Kingfisher contrasting with the action of the scolding Wheatear. Another pair of drawings intended for the 2007 Huddersfield Birdwatchers Club Report.
I first drew the images using a 6B Progresso graphite pencil on Winsor and Newton Cartridge paper. The paper was then soaked and stretched onto the drawing board and allowed to dry. The drawings were then tinted using gradually darker washes of Winsor and Newton Indian Ink.
