"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."

Starting a new set of Illustrations

Waxwings. Pencil and Ink Wash. 130mm x 90mm.

The first of this years illustrations for the Huddersfield Bird Club report. This will be the 21st report I have illustrated.

The drawing is based on a set of sketches that I did a couple of years ago of a small flock that frequented local gardens. This could be a good year for Waxwings as there are already reports of birds in the Halifax area, although I haven't heard of any in the Huddersfield recording area yet.
