Bitterns And Stripes

8 Jul

Bittern 1

I think I’m falling for those crazy bitterns. I couldn’t take my eyes of them at a recent drawing day at Swansea Museum, they’re awesome…..

Bittern 2

I used my Issabey brushes and my home-made walnut ink into a Khadi sketchbook, using the double spread. I focussed on the shape of the group, doing a sort of negative silhouette and using those thick stripes to enhance the composition.
