Weekly Sketch – Fulmar – 14/02/2016

Quick pen sketch, and slightly longer watercolour of a Fulmar; notice the tube-nose on top of the beak which gives them an excellent sense of smell.

  1. I like how there’s a lot of variation in the sketch, giving it a sense of activity even though it’s sitting still. Watercolor crosshatching worked really well here too. I never really considered that that kind of nose would help them smell, but that makes sense. 🙂
