Skomer Day 5: Scrolling On

Bull Hole Scroll Scroll 1, Detail
Bull Hole Scroll 1
With winds gusting around 40mph, I revert to working from inside the Bull Hole hide today, even inside I need to use six heavy duty clips to stop the paper lifting, but I'm grateful for the shelter.I draw solidly all day, finally complete the first Bull Hole Scroll at around 9pm. It has taken a long time, however making it I have learnt how to reduce my drawing to capturing the essence of each bird posture, so I am developing a way of drawing that allows me to move around the colony recording what I see accurately but quickly.
