Rafael Nascimento's Art

Hello,

I have been drawing and painting wildlife and prehistoric subjects since I remember, and in the last years I had done some works for professional projects. I work mostly with watercolors.

Here are some examples:

Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao)/Red-and-green Macaw (Ara chloropterus), Monk Parakeet (Myiopsitta monachus)/Turquoise-fronted Amazon (Amazona aestiva) and Maroon-bellied Parakeet (Pyrrhura frontalis)/Hyacinth Macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus), done (not to scale) on 21x29,7 cm sized-paper for scientific articles; and Great Argus (Argusianus argus) and Lesser Rhea (Rhea pennata), from a set of twelve 29,7x42 cm sized paintings for an expo about the ways the birds helped to shape our knowledge about evolution (more about it here), first featured on the "XXI Congresso Brasileiro de Ornitologia" in Rio de Janeiro, and soon to be open for visitation in Museu Câmara Cascudo of Rio Grande do Norte Federal University.

I also have a DeviantArt account, with more of my work:

Hope you like it!
