My Mate Billy


Really like these Fiona! So well drawn - and lively.

Love Billy, lovely set of sketches, first class !!!

Fine sketching, Fiona.

Thank you Margaret, Linda and Lewis. Billy and Mrs. Billy are always in the garden, or in the fields and trees around the garden, they still have this years four youngsters with them. That will change in a couple of months when they get chased off the territory. Plenty of willing subjects for sketching.

Good quick useful studies Fiona, good stuff!

Like these a lot Fiona

Great observation and humour in these sketches Fiona.

Alan, Paul, Heather, and Carole, glad you like the sketches of my pal. Thank you.

Commented on the Forum but these are a bit more than " scribbles".

Great sketches, Fiona - so well-observed...

Love your family of crows, and your drawings of them.

Thank you very much Richard, Jan, Gudrun for your kind comments.

You’ve done your Billy proud Fiona. Wonderful sketching.

I’m glad you like him Mick. A while back I posted a metal sculpture I did of him which sits on top of an obelisk in the garden. Last night and this morning we’ve had 50/60 mph winds and one of his wings has broken off. Luckily I have a welder! Thanks again Mick.

Poor metal Billy. It’s too wild for him up there and he’s unable to fly a little more south. My Crocus lives in the conservatory and is nice and warm.

Lucky Crocus! In future I might take him down when we are expecting high winds.

Lovely sketches Fiona. Sorry to hear about Billy's "accident" - good thing you can perform the necessary surgery!

Lol....yes Sandra he can be fixed. Thank you.

Hang on Studio Wall
