Eurasian Thick knee’s are great subjects to study, they don’t move at all, they are confident on their camouflage. Ranganathittu bird sanctuary is a great place to study them, took a boat safari and made this quick sketch of them. During studies, i prefer using charcoal sticks for studies, it’s easy to carry them. Put them a small box, papers rolls, a hat, a binocular and bottle of water. I am ready to go!

It’s been great spending time at the studio during weekends, especially the night drawing sessions have been fun filled. October seems like a great creative month, lots of drawing challenges have beentaken up during this month all over the world. INKtober is one of them, started by Mr.Jake Parker. Since i’ve been working on Indian ink for quiet sometime now, its an awesome drawing challenge for me.
Hoping to make 31 bird portraits during this month with Indian Ink. So this is the first one!
