Jill,

Love your dikkop drawing.  I've never seen one before.  It has legs like the plovers that visit us in late winter.

I've never tried drawing a bird from the backside.   You did a great job.

Just unsure of what is behind it (or in front, as the case may be).

Very nicely done, Maryna :clap: :clap: :clap: One of my favourite birds - a couple used to patrol my street at night in SA - very stately attitude :)

Sharon,

I love it - reminds me of my plover.

Love how you did the angled eye. 

This is so very good.

All  packed?  Have a safe flight.
