“Drawing makes you look at the world more closely. It helps you to see what you’re looking at more clearly. Did you know that?”
I said nothing.

That drawing looks like the clock tower at Flinders Street Station as seen from Elizabeth St! Of course, it isn’t, but… As to the blackbird, well, our local blackbird is an inky dark black and short orange beak. Sometimes the light shimmers off the feathers, when seen at the right angle, otherwise it remains a dull finish.
I’m glad it looks like Flinders Street Station (although it’s the view from Southbank rather than Elizabeth St). As for blackbirds, I guess they can be any colour we choose to see ~ black, brown, blue, purple… : )
Oh, so you have been in Melbourne! 😉
