Gannets by Melissa Boag

ARTIST NOTES: This ink sketch is one of a series of drawings I made of the Point Danger gannet colony while artist in residence at the Julia St Creative Space in Portland. The gannets were building their nests. The drawing is on an actual postcard 10cm x14.8cm but, with the frame, is 20cm x 25.5cm
