NestPosted: May 3, 2015
It’s not often that you get to see a nest like this at eye level so I took advantage and sketched it before it gets taken down. Of course the first thing I thought of when I saw it in my garden was Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.” It just needs a pair of hands on either side, doesn’t it?
If you really want to see some beautiful sketches of nests, eggs, birds and other nature drawings, have a look at Jean Mackay’s blog. Not only are the drawings incredible, but I love how she incorporates calligraphy onto the pages of her sketchbooks.
