Kingfisher Study


The kingfisher is a diminutive avian species characterized by its distinctive plumage. The dorsal region exhibits a vibrant metallic blue colouration, while the ventral surface displays a coppery-brown hue. The beak is elongated and black, with females exhibiting a distinctive red patch at its base. With a wingspan of 25 centimetres and a body length of 16 centimetres, the kingfisher marginally exceeds the dimensions of a robin despite possessing nearly double its weight.

Meticulously rendered using polychromos pencils, the artwork is complemented by a flourish of gold accents. The substrate employed is heavyweight watercolour paper, boasting a substantial weight of 300 grams per square meter and dimensions of 10 by 8 inches.
