An Explosion of Wacky Birds

….not literally

This week it’s been so hot that my husband didn’t think he could come up with a wacky bird. He decided to do a very quick sketch and apply watercolour without too much detail. When he finished the first painting he was so pleased with how quickly it came together and he decided to make another one. He ended up making four wacky birds in total and quickly realized that his inner Quentin Blake had been summoned. If you’re a fan of Roald Dahl books you’ll know what I mean.

Todays prompt is lighthouse. Christian Island, where my cottage resides has its own lighthouse on the southern tip of the island. It is still operational but now it no longer employs a lighthouse keeper.fullsizeoutput-70ea
