G is for Gull

Here I am, sneaking in, under the deadline by a whisker!

For the Craft Barn's A-Z this fortnight the letter was G, and I picked a gull...


I also found a couple of new-to-me words...

gutta-percha and inspissated.  I love this old dictionary!

I am really pleased with this drawing. 

Last fortnight was raspberry and I didn't get my pages finished due to illness.  Well, I think it is done but I'm not in love.  I may well come back to it with fresh eyes and work on it some more!

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments and messages!


  1. Absolutely LOVE your gull! He is fabulous! I really can't get enough of him. Your page spread looks so awesome. I like the raspberry just as it is, but not being a painter, I don't see what you yet are not seeing. My favorite G entry!

  2. Yep that gull is VERY life like and the way it emerges from the page is lovely. The raspberry is a matter of opinion but if it helps, looking at a real raspberry for comparison I'd say that the "grains" are less spherical and more on top of each other. It's not an easy drawing...

  3. Love both of your pages Laura. Hope you are feeling better.

  4. Hi Laura, Loving the Raspberry and gull pages. Sue

  6. Snap! I chose gull as well. Not that I would ever have contemplated drawing mine. Your image is fabulous and that little touch of blue around the edge sets him off perfectly.

  7. A beautiful drawing, you've captured the feisty nature of the gull x


Thank you for taking the time to comment.
