Little Kingfisher by BetweenAsleepAndWake Little Kingfisher by BetweenAsleepAndWake
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.:eyes:

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.

A wonderful design especially for the excellent performance of the color of the feathers and the background. :-)

haa bé alors la!! Merci !
j'en ai vu un hier soir et je me demandais bien ce que ça pouvais être comme oiseau; sauf que le mien avais les couleurs inversées... enfin vala...

Généralement, on voit ces oiseaux surtout près d'un petit cours d'eau. Si les couleurs étaient inversées, alors je pense que cela n'en était peut-être pas un. Peut-être un geai ?

salstick Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012
bé il y a aussi des geais; mais celui la est plus petit avec le bec plus fin,il ressemble vraiment au martin pêcheur je regarde pour le prendre en photo a chaque foies que je passe sur les bord de seine je finirai bien par l'avoir ;)
