Day Two of Illustrating Away

Today's Feature in the Series is all about Birds

Red-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta canadensis) is my most favourite & he is also one of the most friendly that we find fluttering around the forest.


The plan for today was suppose to be all types of fauna featured but I ended up focusing on beautiful birds instead ... they are so conducive to my illustrating styles & the manner at which I go about the digital drawings. I just love how the feathers & colours turn out, they are very gratifying in the end product of illustration. I also concentrated on my favourites & the friendlies of the forest ... I ended up finding fauna a most pleasing experiment in digital illustration for the day. Hope you liked the flowers yesterday ... most of them were wetland flowers.

OMG I just love the Shoveler my most favourite duck. Northern Shoveler (Anas clypeata) found this guy wading around on a back golden pond at the Britannia Conservation Area, Mud Lake, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Friendly fellow of the forest the White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) on the Sarsaparilla Trail, in Stoney Swamp just West of the city.

Love the colour & how mouthy these guys are when they are in a group. Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata)

This is a double illustration graphic (sometimes I go triple) that I have in my bag of tricks that I perform on these images. If you ask I may tell you about it ... Swainson's Hawk (Buteo swainsoni ) Southern Alberta, Canada. They have the classic poses on the fence posts down there.

& once again my favourite friendly fellow ... remind me to add a Chickadee they have to represent here.

Think I should have double illustrated but meh you get the picture ... might update ... might not ... things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Let you guess if I do or not.
