I heard about the avian flu is wreaking havoc on seabirds and they are desperate for help. As far as I know gannet has lost about 50% of its population. I would like to help by raising awareness.
The word gannet originates from old english “ganot” meaning “strong or masculine”. It is probably because it is the largest seabird of the northern habitat and has a very bold high speed diving fishing technique.
I have used watercolor pencils and paint on paper. Since the paper has been damaged a bit I had enlarged the format with Photoshop and made a 30x40cm canvas version.
