New field studies

Since I haven't been present here for a long -long time, I thought
it was about time to refresh my presence hoping to upload new work
as often as I can...
I'm glad that Tim(Wootton) and other "old beans" are still around , giving to this Forum its outstanding reputation!
This time I'd love to share with you few new studies from captive birds and animals, done a week ago in Saxony..

I'm going to chip in with a 'stunning!' before anyone else gets the chance. Work of this standard deserves that and more.

Great stuff as usual Dougalis - like the fish and the feeding squirrely beastie is fab! Just returned from 4 days in Munich...that's a nice city you've got there - if I see another massive glass of beer again it'll be too soon...well, maybe !!

I'm with Adam on the fish and the feeding what? It looks a bit like a chipmunk without the stripes. All very enjoyable.

Thank you all for your kind comments!
Ulrike ,viele Grüße aus München!
Adam, in case you are planning to visit Munich again just give me a call
(details on my Website..) It would be great to meet eachother and why not,
to drink a "Weißbier" together :)
The small rodent is a european ground squirrel,also known as a european souslik.
Attached now a couple of new works done today morning in Munich zoo.
A rather detailed portrait as well a quick sketch of a displaying Great cormorant ...

Excellent lighting captured on the Cormorant - and I'm sure I'll be visiting Munich again (my friend works there now) so would be excellent to meet up! We went and spent a day up around Zugspitze....fab views and cheeky Alpine Choughs stealing food from the tables too!

Oh, I think, I've never been to the Munich Zoo, but I've been to Munich quite often.

Good idea for next time...

Beautiful work! Great palette with the greens. The slight back lighting really helps to add dimension.

Don't know what 'ausgezeichnet' means but I hope it means something like 'That watercolor is truly stunning.'

This owl is not really a field study, is it?

Great, great, great! O:-)

the only thing I don't like about this is - I can't do it! Wow. I've never been comfortable with birds close to, I see so much more that it really 'blocks' my flow. This is just simply stunning.

Have to agree with Nick - only thing wrong is my inability to do this kind of work. Thoroughly outstanding work.

My reaction as well, except that I know it is a field study. Really amazing.
