I was fortunate to be able to draw this bird from life. One of the benefits of any artist is that they need only a few items to be able to capture something of interest - in this case, just a pencil and my sketchbook. This sketch shown here is of  a grey morph bird, (I was lucky enough to see 3 in Iceland). This and other studies led to a number of paintings of these rather handsome birds, none of which really captured what I wanted to say about them - but I'll keep trying! Size is about 5 x 7 inches.
