Sepia ink and gouache on grey toned Strathmore paper, 108 x 143mm.

‘Emus… are like a fluffy pair of legs and neck’, according to my friend, Marc. Both his comment and my drawing were inspired by this brilliant video, Emu Tango.

I’d fluffed (pun fully intended) the inking somewhat: a combination of being under the weather, unfocussed, and using a brush which was quite on its last legs. I consequently spent some time trying to salvage the drawing, so that, once again, I ended up taking far longer than the result should have warranted. Heigh ho.
