11. Barnacle goose (Branta leucopsis)

Today I am feeling pretty frazzled after a couple of fairly manic days at work so felt like having some fun with my drawing. Luckily it was the turn of barnacle goose, my favourite goose! I've given it a whole page and drawn more of a portrait (this time it's meant to go off the edge of the page).

I had to sharpen my pencil a fair few times. Initially I did want to do it in ink but I wimped out, maybe another time! I think I made the body a bit too big and the head shape is not quite right, but at least drawing it has helped me feel less frazzled.
