Sketches from Life

In order to give my artwork a authentic and lifelike quality, I often go out and sketch nature from life. Working from the actual living bird not only teaches me about it's movements and gestures, but gives me a more immediate record of the actual experience of seeing them.

This small selection of sketches shows my work directly from life and studies of captive birds and bird specimens.
