Another one from the sketchbook. I was drawing down by the Yarra South Bank this afternoon and even though it is the city centre there is an abundance of birds from pied cormorants, a little grey heron, coots, ducks, seagulls of course! and black swans, I even saw a cockatoo flying past here a few weeks ago. Birds everywhere in Australia!
I was especially happy when the swans ventured out of the water. They are so serene and graceful in the water and then they waddle and flop on land, that's when I like to draw them!
I once saw a swan stand on his own foot and fall flat on his chest, very funny.
