Sketch of the day no 668 in my moleskine art journal is a drawing of a Red whiskered bul bul, a tropical bird found in my garden in Penang, Malaysia. It has a pretty cool punk hairdo! Maybe he’s going out tonight?
Happy weekend!

Sketch of the day no 643 in my moleskine art journal: House crow, Penang, Malaysia

Drawing of House Crow. Corvus splendens

Today’s sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is of a common bird in Penang and around Malaysia which is the House crow. Crows are really intelligent birds, resourceful and they have a good memory but they attack the other birds and can be real pests.
When my brother and I were young, he threw a rock at a crow but it wasn’t killed so it went to tell all its friends about us. For about a week, everytime we left our house, a few of them would swoop down from the trees to attack us. It was traumatising. Think the birds from Alfred Hitchcock!

Sketch of the day no 637 in my moleskine art journal: Birdwatching at Hampstead Heath Duck Pond

Birdwatching at Hampstead Heath Duck Pond. Male Mallard and Eurasian coot.

One of my favourite places in London is Hampstead Heath. I love going to the duck pond, sitting on the park bench and watching the birds in the pond. I find it very peaceful.

Today’s sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is from my visit to Hampstead Heath Duck Pond. I have drawn a Male mallard and an Eurasian coot. There were a few of them swimming there. I thought it was a bit cold to swim to be honest. Luckily for them they don’t seem to mind.

Painting of her favourite subjects. Birds and flowers in the garden. Her pride and joy. She loved nature a lot and spent many hours tending to her garden, watching the birds and listening to them sing.

I miss my sketch of the day so I have decided to carry on, but not everyday ;p

I love by the coast and there is a mangrove starting to build up outside the house due to land reclamation. The wildlife ecosystem has changed over the years. I have noticed birds I have never seen before starting to hang around the garden area and in the muddy waters outside.

I have officially become a birder. Happy weekend all xx
