Richard Bell's nature sketchbook since 1998
That little sketch of him watching the thistledown has caught the posture and moment brilliantly. Wonderful quick sketches. Thanks Richard.
Thank you Jane. They’re such a pleasure to draw as they’re so aware of everything that’s going on. Sometimes I like to draw an animals that just stays put – like an Indian rhinoceros, that was one of my favourites at the London Zoo – but it’s also fascinating to study a bit of animal behaviour. Having picking up a little background knowledge helps in interpreting what might be going on and the observation that lemurs live in a matriarchal society was something that came up in the Channel 4 series ‘The Secret Life of the Zoo’ where a new female was introduced to a carefree group of bachelor males on Chester Zoo’s Lemur Island: they knew who was going to be boss!
Thank you for the Huddersfield Place Names link, I’ll add that to the post.
