Jacamar. This pretty little bird is related somewhere along the line to the Bee eaters and has nothing to do with hummingbirds even though they look so similar. I put all the colors l used in this drawing in the shot you see here. You can see a step by step guide to drawing feathers on my tips page. SOLD.
Black Throated Mango Hummingbird
This beautiful reference photo was used with the kind permission of the talented https://www.facebook.com/StephenJayPhotography/. SOLD.
I have had the beautiful reference photo for this bird for a rather long time and have finally got around to drawing it. I was working hard to achieve iridescence with this piece.
Labrador Puppy eating Strawberries
Labrador puppy eating strawberries. Having never drawn a Labrador, or a puppy or strawberries or even a pale dog on a white background this was an interesting challenge for me. And l live a challenge! Actually l loved every minute of drawing this fun piece. As always l used Faber Castell Polychromos and Caran D'Ache Luminance and Supracolor pencils. I used a lot of the Luminance on this piece for all the beautiful blonde colors in the range.
Lilac Crowned Amazon Parrot
This Lilac crowned Amazon Parrot was the first time l experimented with Copic markers as a base coat of color. This was in an attempt to acheive more vibrancy without building up the layers so much that l couldn’t add more color.
Blue And Yellow Betta Fish
Another of my Betta Fish drawings. On this one l loved the way the fins swirled around the fish. SOLD.
Siamese Fighting Fish, (Japanese Fghting Fish, Betta Fish or Half Moon Fish). I was so excited to draw this piece that l leapt out of bed at 4am every morning longing to get to my art room! I loved it, it is such a colourful fish, with so much detail. Real fun to SOLD.
Mandarin Dragnet Fish
Mandarin Dragonet Fish. How could l not draw a fish so psychedelic? Knowing how l love colour this fish was not to be resisted! Available to purchase.
The Black Cat
More cat art! The eyes again! They always draw me in!This very intense looking cat was a departure for me and was worked in colored pencil on black mat board. It measures 8"x8". SOLD.
