    Bird of Thailand

    All your paintings are sooo good, but I especially like your coppersmith barbets with the beaks full of berries. oh and although this is a 'birdforum' this art bit actually says 'wildlife art' so it's fine to post animals (and plants) of all kinds.

    Thank you, I like to mix different medias, but I haven't tried anything like that. I love that artwork! I would never guess there was toilet roll on it! :t: I have incorporated marker pen into some of my drawings but sometimes I get it a bit wrong and it seems to come out a bit cartoon-like :-O...

    White tailed sea eagle, in coloured pencils (but the background colour is watercolour) drawn from a photo I took of a captive bird last year. I would love to see one in the wild, but I'll have to wait for that!

    the progress so far- using cheap coloured pencils and a 'burnishing' white pencil which I rub over the coloured pencil to blend the colours together and smooth it out. (last pic is slightly blurred)

    Tackling birds in coloured pencil

    forgot to say, I especially love that sparrowhawk because people often put birds in rural settings in paintings and drawings. But I get sparrowhawks in my garden so I know this is a perfect setting :) another thing I'd like to ask. What coloured pencils does everyone recommend? I was going to...

    Tackling birds in coloured pencil

    Your bird drawings are absolutely amazing. I have never seen such great coloured pencil work! I find not many people use them anymore. I haven't in a while in fact, but now you've inspired me, I might give it a go tomorrow :)
