Bird's Eye View

Here's Sketchbook Project #6 - This was a giant stork's nest we saw in Faro, Portugal (the nest was giant - I'm sure the stork was just the average size!).

I used a large dollop of artistic licence with this one as I invented trees where there weren't any, moved the wee couple so they were behind the pole instead of in front, made things disappear and deployed a pointy background style to avoid getting bogged down in too much detail! Still, that's what art is all about - interpreting a scene or an object in your own way (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
