The Hoopoe is another bird that has been on my to do list for a while, for me it was really exciting to use a completely different color palette. The Hoopoe also has some unusual textures to the head and neck feathers which were a nice challenge.
Blue and Red Betta Fish
l really loved the unusual color combination in this gorgeous Betta Fish. I used reds from all my pencil brands (Faber Castell Polychromos and Caran D’ache Luminance and Pablo’s and Holbeins) for this piece. For a step by step guide to drawing fish scales click the link below
The Turaco was a completely new bird to me and l am so excited to have found it, l certainly have more on my to do list!
Chinese Water Dragon
This is a very large piece. I have wanted to draw another lizard for a while, but to work bigger to get more detail in. This piece is drawn on grey Stonehenge paper. SOLD.
Dwarf Oriental Kingfisher
I was so excited to draw this gorgeous little bird, and l got to try out my new Holbien pencils too! They are so vibrant. You will find a step by step guide to drawing this type of feather on my tips page.
Because you have to have a pair of Love Birds. These beautiful birds pair for life, how could l separate them?
Robin in Snow
Robin in the snow. It was really fun to draw snow. Something l have never done before. This Robin was drawn on grey paper as l really wanted to capture the wintery feel.
Chameleons are another creature l have a very soft spot for. This is my second chameleon drawing. SOLD.
Ruby Topaz Hummingbird
This hummingbird has such unusual colors l couldn’t help but draw it. As always the chance to work with a different color palette always draws me in!
This hummingbird l dont have a positive identification for. l think it might be a Calliope? lf anyone can positively id it for me l would be so grateful to hear from you. This was another photo from the amazing StephenJayPhotography. You can find him over on Facebook, his link is in the post below.
This chameleon captured me with his amazing expression. He just looked so cheeky! SOLD.
