For my first project of the year, I’ve decided to illustrate a Kingfisher. My first attempt at drawing this bird was back in 2014, which was commissioned by a bird enthusiast based in Sweden. It’s still one of my favourite paintings and the reason why I decided to illustrate another. As with the original painting, I will be using watercolours for the background along with graphite and colour pencils for the bird itself.
The illustration will be made using Daniel Smith Watercolours, Faber-Castell Polychromos colour pencils and graphite pencil and painted on Arches Hot Pressed 140 lb watercolour block.
Final size of illustration will be 8.25 inches wide by 10 inches high.
