William Morris' Birds

Itching for a treat of day out, I decided to head north to the William Morris Gallery. It's been on my radar a lot recently - having re-opened after extensive refurbishments, I first saw the jobs and then the photos, and now it has the additional prestige of having won the Art Fund prize.
India06I had a wonderful time - it's tremendously inspiring to follow a story of such business success within the creative realm, and since Morris combined this with a sensitivity to the issues of society, he couldn't really make me happier!

From a sketching perspective of course, I kept my eye open for the birds, and filled my pages with Morris' birds.
