another one for the March Challenge

Great pen and wash, Margaret. Love your colour choice and the beautiful pen work.

Great little sketch Margaret, yes it’s a good challenge, once I get a bit more time I would like to have another go.

Love your pen and ink sketch Margaret and the way the gull is just about to take flight

Very nice Margaret.

Looks just about ready to take flight Margaret, lovely pen and wash.

Lovely pen and wash Margaret. This challenge is proving popular, must have another go, lots of possibilities!

Great idea Margaret, some great one's flowing through.

Well done Margaret, some good ones this month.

Nice one Margaret. Really like the blues and combination of mediums.

Thank you all for your lovely comments - they are much appreciated :) I look forward to seeing everybody's efforts for this Challenge - already a lovely variety of images.

It's a smasher, Margaret, with fabulous movement and poise. Great sketch! Bri

Lots of lovely expectant movement ! We had a flock circling and crying over us this morning - miles from the sea !

Very good and lively !

Thank you Bri, Rachel, Margaret and Richard - your comments are much appreciated :) Rachel - they are great to watch - and they are often miles from the sea! Often see them in newly ploughed fields (and round waste dumps).

Love your bird sketches , Margaret, great wings.

Lovely pen and wash Margaret

This a style I really like. The watercolour is beautifully applied then movement captured with lively pen marks

Hang on Studio Wall

I love this Challenge topic! A black headed gull (winter plumage) on snow - from one of my photos. Watercolour and artist pen on Stillman & Birn Zeta pad 5.5" x 8.5 "
