What a turkey!

Loved drawing these turkeys. Could hardly walk under the weight of their own importance, all fluffed up and noone taking the blindest bit of notice. Never really noticed how beautiful their feathers were, quite subtle until you really look. Wish I had my paints when I drew them, but seeing as I was supposed to be working when I whipped my sketchbook out,  probably would have been really cheeky if I had done so...


  1. Great sketches and yes they are big birds, I saw some by the road side a few weeks back (had to stop and look) and I couldn't get over how huge they were (and also how very clueless they were to my car or me)...
    What colour ink did you use (I like it)?

  2. Love these sketches. I'm glad you stopped working to draw them ;D

  3. Great pictures. I have a post about hunting wild turkeys on my new blog (Darkside of the Moon). A little dark humor. X.
