some of my birds

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.

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!

Re: some of my birds

A warm welcome to the Animal & Wildlife Forum!

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

Re: some of my birds

These are beautiful. I love the attention to detail and the natural colours. These belong in a book! Thank you for showing us.

Oooh, I absolutely love this naturalistic style, so your works just made my day! I hope you'll like it here and will post more of your works.
