Gannet Field Study
This was sketched on a scorching hot day on the cliffs of Bempton, Yorkshire. It is the only land colony of Gannets in the UK. It is a popular site with visitors so the biggest challenge is to find an unoccupied spot to draw. This throws up all sorts of challenges and distractions, but all too often the beautiful sight and sound of the colony lures me in to forget about the hustle and bustle of people and focus on the solely on the actions of the birds.
