Here’s the finished drawing from yesterday’s livestream. The timelapse is on my Instagram TV channel. Take a look! .

I’ve been on the hunt for golden eagles up here in the Cairngorms (ever the optimist). No luck yet but I’ve seen plenty of these gorgeous swallows, flitting around and enjoying themselves in the beautiful summer sunshine ☀️

This one is now out on display and for sale at Glass Cuttings at @pigglywigglymidlands (60x90 cm)
