Well the grouse piece finally got finished, and I decided to do a couple of small pieces inspired by my recent trip to Morroco in November. These are few of the many sketches I did in the field, whilst out there. I've got a lot of interesting material to work with,both sketches and photos, and hopefully over time it will help me to produce some exciting paintings inspired by the region.
Above is a Desert wheatear, and below , a goldfinch on thistles. These thistles were quite formidable- you wouldn't want to fall in them!
