New field studies

It is true that I've been very quiet lately...
It was because of the tight deadlines I had to catch up with,
while doing illustrations..
The German Bird atlas has been finished now, and during a visit
to my Parents in low in Saxony , I used the limited time I had to
recover and to do some field work..
(All the attached studies have been done on location in Saxony with the exception
of the Cormorant's head done in Munich zoo last week)















Great Cormorant head study

















White Stork head study















Common Rudd





















Red Kite
















European ground squirrel

Tawny owl & Duck studies-Nymphenburg Park

After weeks of snowfalls, stormy winds and darkness the sun is back! It was a sunny but a very cold day today, with temperatures below and around zero..
At least there was no wind at all, such a peaceful feeling! I couldn´t miss the chanec to go back to the Park to look after the Owls. I saw at least four and managed to sketch two of them. On my way back to the car I spotted in the small half-frozen lake in the front of the Palace among many Tufted & Pochard ducks, a Ferruginus duck, a real rarity for Germany...
