30 Days Wild - Day 20 - 20 June 2015


30 Days Wild - Doing something wild everyday

Day 20 - Learning to sketch birds at Camp Avalon, the camp I have organised for young birders and children from the city who have never engaged with nature

The session was given by the amazing bird artist John Gale with help from his 16 year old son Tom.

It was great to watch teenagers who had never drawn a bird look at a photograph carefully, see the shapes and have a go and produce something brilliant.
