This very quick sketch was drawn when we went to Barnstaple. The weather was very wet but did clear up by the afternoon. We were able to eat our sandwiches in a small garden just beside the church in the middle of the town. There was another one of those crafty seagulls on the lookout for a tasty snack, namely from us down below. He was pretending not to look at us but we knew better.
With birds on my mind I couldn't resist sketching another 'cheeky chicken'. I used a dip pen which is why you can achieve the thick and thin line in one stroke.
