Well that was quite a night last night due to the incredibly strong winds that blew through this way.
So much so that we could virtually feel the house shake.
I was constantly woken up by the intruder light going off and on due to all the movement of trees, bushes and who knows what else.
It gave me a tiny snippet of what it might be like to experience a tornado. Rather frightening.
Thankfully, there wasn't too much damage and debris when I checked around the garden this morning.
The bird table (placed on the floor so that it didn't fall and break thankfully is still intact) but empty!
And some of the feeders were no where to be found!
I feed the bird visitors in my garden every morning and I became aware of masses of eyes, tweets, and twitterbations going on as I wandered around the garden.
Where was breakfast????
This gave me a fun idea for a sketch...
I certainly had fun with this one... so decided that I'd carry on and add colour
I started off in my normal precise way but then reminded myself that I want to try to be a little more loose with my work... so took a deep breath and dived right in!
I was thinking I should get out my bird books in order to get the correct plummage and colours but then that would be defeating the object and didn't seem fitting for this Friday fun sketch... so I ignored my urge.
I even look at the wood work and nearly come out in a rash at how random the lines are.
I'm pleased I've kept it so loose but I'm not promising that I might head back at some stage and tweak or maybe even take this theme and redo it.
I'm linking up with Eva and Kristin's Paint Party Friday
Why not make a cuppa and nip over to see lots of amazing artwork.
That's me done for today...
It's Friday night so let the weekend commence.
Have fun everyone!
