Blog A Day 5 Not Tweet or Hoot but Coot!
For a while now I have had a burning desire to make some life size or at least bigger sized birds. I have a real craving to make a large flamingo but I thought Maybe I should start with a less ambitious project!I started making a Raven but then decided against it as it would be BLACK and I doubt it would photograph well at all so the creature got longer and thinner and I remembered the Coots and Moorhens we used to see drift around Roundhay Park Lake in Leeds as a child, they had such fun characters and a funny bobby kind of walk!I have christened my coot Christopher... I don't know why I just have. Christopher is 6.5 inches tall and a little intimidating to the average tweet but he is a very friendly chap!
Now I am going to start on my flamingo... I really hope it works!
