This is an original sketch of a herring gull. The drawing was done in pencil and watercolour on matte white card. It will be titled and signed.
I drew this gull as part of a collection of seaside drawings for my Nature’s Notebook series. I spotted him while on a trip to Pittenweem a couple of summers ago. I wrote a blog post about that trip here. This gull absolutely definitely wants to steal your chips.
Size: The drawing is on A5 (210 x 148mm) white 300gsm card. The drawing is landscape in orientation.
The drawing is unframed. I think it would look smart in a plain oak frame but that bit is up to you!
The drawing will be sent in a protective envelope via tracked shipping.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
I am a countryside artist based in the Scottish Borders. Working mainly in pencil, I record the details of the fields and woodlands and hedgerows around me. I aim to create calm, delicate drawings, carefully observed and full of character. I then use these drawings to create my range of charming, nature-inspired cards and stationery.
My work captures a moment in time and conveys the sense of stillness and peace that I feel when I am in the countryside. I became a mum to the sweetest little boy – nickname Pig – last year. We love exploring the woodland where we live together. I take my camera and my sketchbook and I try to look carefully at the world. I would love to think that my work inspires others to reconnect with the countryside around them, and perhaps even to have a go at drawing it themselves. You can see some of my sketchbook work on my blog.
