reservoir bay

wax crayon, c.A2

Sketching at local reservoir. Started off by sketching the flycatching black-headed gulls. Moving in little circuits, able to fly very (apparently) lazily into the cool breeze, a limpid slow moving patch of water beneath them where they would dip bills to pick up something on the surface or crane necks to snap at an air borne morsel.
Feeling that I wanted to look at the bigger space and use my pieces of paper in a more spatial way… always this battle on how to show the things seen close up through the optical equipment and the sense of place gathered with naked eye.
