Parade Of The Toucans

Greetings. I haven't posted in the colored pencil forum in quite awhile. I'm sharing this pictorial design featuring several spices of the Toucan family with the varying color patterns on their beaks. Prismacolor Premier with lightfast ratings of I and II on Strathmore 500 plate surface Bristol Board. Size 35 x 28 inches.

Terrific! What a fun and colourful piece!

Also educational - I had no idea there were so many different species of toucans with such different markings.

Schuee, KaySilver, laika, thanks for your comments. There are many more species of Toucans than what is depicted here in this design living in the tropical rain forest of South and Central America.

This is so far from your usual florals and portraits. It is quite stunningly beautiful. I love the way you have done the background.

Thanks Pingpongfan. I like to mix it up in terms of subject matter. You can browse my postings in other media on WetCanvas to see what I mean.
