So beautifully delicate and well described Mia.

Your pen and wash work is marvellous Mia and this is a very lovely piece.

I love the simplicity of this, very much on the Chinese style of painting. well done Mia.

Thank you Carole, Margaret and Tao for your positive comments. I very much admire and love the Chinese style of painting, Tao. Always have that in mind since I was an art student in the 60ties.

I very nearly missed this on the gallery Mia - really beautiful and delicate.

A good sketch here Mia :)

Great use of pen and ink Mia, the marks and washes are full of life

Not far from where I live, there is a Natural Reserve specially accomodated for storks to make their nests. They return there every year and add new branches onto their old nests from the year before. A few weeks ago, my husband and daughter made a trip to see this and they came home with lots of photographs of the nests. This is one of them. I made a quick sketch, size A4. All comments very welcome :) Mia.
