Just adding my drawing to this so that Teresa does not feel lonely...  ;) I did this with a fountain pen with black ink on drawing paper. This is more of a sketch than a drawing...  :tongue:

Well done, Teresa, despite the challenges presented by the subject, the paper and the medium. Tough about the RSI. i hope you recover soon.
Val... we often had black swans visit and tap on the hull for bread. But feeding them stopped abruptly when they started turning up with their cygnets (yes, charming!) but at 5 am. The Captain of the vessel is not an early riser!

Good drawing of the goose Gita  :clap: I am glad you joined my goose so it wouldn't feel lonely  :smitten:
Elizabeth great job and good shading  :clap:

 :thankyou: Linley for your comments. The RSI developed back in the late 80s as I am my own worst person for not stopping to take rests when i was working. It has never fully gone away and flares up with using the computer mouse and repetitive work such as the colouring in. But now I am retired a day or so rest between and I am off again.

Only just found your goose, Gita. Love the movement in the water especially. Elizabeth, I suspect that soon we'll have a  whole flock, although it is getting near the cut-off date.
