“Just Looking”
 195 x 375 mm. February 2017

Scattered between reconnaissance missions and precision dives for fish are periods of standing still – while ever-ready to take off again in an instant.  The tern regards his environment as the light fades around him on a summer’s evening in Fremantle.

The drawing “Just Looking” is a combination of coloured pencils with Caran d’Ache Neopastels on Arches Aquarelle smooth watercolour paper.

    Gentle contemplation……love this one, Julie, I can smell the evening air in Fremantle!

  3. Your tern looks very comfortable in his environment, relaxed but ready to continue about his daily (or evening) business. The wide format works beautifully with this subject. The mix of sharply defined bird and softly glowing distance are very satisfying.
