Influence of the Bay

In April of 2019 I made the move from Nottingham city centre to Morecambe Bay, on the North West coast of England. Cooler and wetter than the's saving grace is the ethereal beauty of the bay, as it curves round towards the Lake District..the ever-changing colours of sea and sky, and the array of bird-life.
   Even in the town of Morecambe itself, one does not need to walk far to enjoy spectacular views and see and hear the plaintive calls of the Curlew, which is fast becoming one of my favourite birds..
   So I'm sharing here a recent Curlew design, created in pen and ink on watercolour paper...along with some of my recent photographs of Morecambe Bay..
