Hi, thought I'd share a couple of my bird drawings. All done with colour pencil. Gouldian finches, Hen Superb Parrot and Mangrove Golden Whistler.

Oh, and a watercolour or two. Star finches, Zebra finches and a Honey Eater

Hi Martin and welcome to WetCanvas!
Your CP and watercolor birds are fascinating! Within their botanical settings the realism just glows. Hope to see more of your work!

These bird paintings are absolutely exquisite, so very beautifully rendered! I could see them featuring in a book of bird paintings! :clap:

Beautifully detailed! What size?

These are all so wonderful. So detailed and the backgrounds are not only beautiful but really add to the artworks.

Martin. They are all absolutely exquisite works and should be in a book of bird illustrations. What size are they??
05-14-2017, 06:38 AM
Thanks for all the support and comments. For those asking about the sizes, they are all on approximately A4 size paper (it depends on which watercolour pad I used at the time).
More recently I've been just doing b/w pencil sketches. I'll see if I can put some up.

Good grief these are astonishing, especially the middle one; you can feel the soft warm body of this bird! The branch he sits on shouldn't pass without comment either... botanical and zoological pictures of the finest quality, Martin :clap:
