This is a field sketch of two rock ptarmigans that I saw in northern Sweden a few years ago. It is difficult to recall a visual impression just like that but I have some photos that I can use to get the light and colours right for a watercolour painting. I will keep you informed.

Just one more Koster painting before returning to the book illustrations that will keep me busy for most of the summer. The seeds of the wonderful Beach Pea float around in the sea for years before germinating on a sand or gravel beach, which explains the species' wide native range covering the shores of Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
