Recent Sketch

It's exam period right now, so I can't go out taking photos of birds like usual. However, it will be over soon by the end of this week, and I've already planned for a trip to several new birding spots in Oita. Talking with Furuso-san gave me lots of information about birding spots within Oita Prefecture. She also told me about the website that updates the sightings of birds in Oita Prefecture, which is this website. When I first visited and checked out the sighting reports, I just couldn't believe how good the birds are in this city. A flock of Hooded Cranes was even found just upper stream of the Oita River where I visit occasionally. There are even Brent Geese, Copper Pheasants, Japanese Waxwings, and Baikal Teals, all the birds I wish to see once. I got to make the most out of the remaining time for me living in Japan. By the way, here's a recent sketch of the Bean Geese at Sekino-E I did last week. The pleasure of drawing and painting is coming back to me again! To see more of the recent sketches, visit my gallery here.
