Swallows

Mar 19, 2016 | Birds, Drawing, Illustration, Nature | 1 comment

Been exploring images of swallows over the last few weeks. They are eventually to go with Patty’s 3D swallows for Barnaby and will appear on banners.

I am looking at features that enable people to know these are swallows such as red patch on throat, their shape and the long thin tail.

    Particularly like the two heads and also the pencil drawing of the swallow in flight. Better crack on with the 3D ones!
