This cute little 'Martin pêcheur' or Kingfisher I drew for my father as a father's day gift this year. He had showed me a photo with such a bird a long time ago and had suggested I should do more colorful artwork. I figured he must like these kind of birds.
I drew the bird using Faber Castell color pencils and then used watercolor for the background. Done on Clairefontaine paper. The size of the original piece is A4.
And here is a link to the reference photo (taken by Nigel Tinlin) I found on a wildlife and nature photography blog:[link]
I really love birds, especially robins, and so you might see more of them in my gallery.
