Day 171: Rough Cormorant Sketch

Cormorant (graphite)

Cormorant (graphite)

We had a walk along the harbourside in Newcastle this afternoon and found a very friendly Cormorant standing on a pile close to the walkway. He wasn’t at all scared and sat cleaning himself while I took photos and watched.

This is a very poor sketch considering the amount of time I had to observe him, but I’m looking forward to painting him when I get home – the colours of the water and the rusty post were lovely!
