Manchester museum

Today I went to Manchester museum to draw & photograph some of the stuffed birds there.Great fun, haven't done that since art college! I felt a little nervous about being watched and the fear of the blank page set in, but after a few marks i really enjoyed it.
I wanted to get to grips with the shapes a bit more, and have challenged myself to fill a sketch book with only birds, so not only will my hands understand the shapes better but I will have a great visual resource to use in other work. I took loads of photos so I can keep drawing from them to fill the book.
