Nearing the end of the Sketchbook Project now. The drawing is largely based on a bit of video which The Husband took a couple of years ago. I hadn’t seen it until last weekend, as he’d not got around to editing it until now. We were walking in Arnside in Cumbria, and came across a beautiful grey heron. It kindly granted The Husband just enough time to focus the video camera before ‘struggling into its wings’ and heading off. You can read Paul Farley’s poem here. According the the DK book Signs & Symbols, in Ancient Egypt, the heron was seen as a symbol of the morning sun and regeneration.
