Falconer Sara with her redtailed hawk, Enola, at Armstrong Woods in Guerneville, CA
Isn’t she beautiful?! We got to sketch Enola in the redwoods before heading out to Goat Rock beach, in the second session of Bird Arting with Jonqui Albin, sponsored by the Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods.
Myself, Suzanne Edminster and Karen Mason bundled up and at the beach sketching those impossibly fast flying gulls, cormorants and terns. Those lumps on the beach in the background are the harbor seals and their pups. Just draw a tube and put some eyes in it!
9 X 12″ pen and w/c sketch
Our reward. . .a delicious lunch at Cape Fear Restaurant in Duncans Mills and time to sketch people and share pens and paints with each other. I love the way this woman looks like she’s biting her nails, which seems to go with the title “Cape Fear” even though that was unintentional. She was eating, after all.
