Day 21: Take a Seat

I sat on a pile of cushions on top of a beanbag (squishy, noisy when I moved) by the back bay window (cool and a little drafty) watching the birds in the garden. The colours were soft and muted due to the overcast day, with flashes of bright wing bars and beaks on certain birds. I could hear the washing machine in the background at first but soon became focused on the antics of all the different birds and their differing feeding habits. After 5 minutes I made some sketches of some of the different beaks that were visiting.
