Marsh Harrier over Cley Marshes

Today’s watercolour shows a Marsh Harrier from a low viewpoint at the end of a drainage ditch. The harrier appeared low over the reeds about 50 metres along the ditch, saw me then turned back out over the reedbed. The painting uses very fluid washes for the sky and the water. The reeds and the harrier by contrast are painted with thick watercolour almost dry brushed to give depth to the picture.
