There were some white birds flying caught my eyes. They were seagulls. It was very unusual of them. I have never seen so many of them in my garden. I thought to draw them for ex 3. I gave up after a few attempts on A2 sugar paper. I thought wandering albatross will be more interesting. I dug out some photos from our trip to Antarctica as reference material. So I combined ex 3 and 4 together. Below is a drawing of a wandering albatross in the South Ocean, using charcoal and pastel on an old piece of A2 greenish-grey sugar paper. Albatross is a majestic bird. I chose to draw the bird as big as possible to the edges of the paper because I like want to emphasis it’s size. I also include some sketches and preliminary works in my sketchbook.
