Fieldsketching trip to Northern Greece-May 2012

 I`m just back from Northern Greece, where I spend a week watching, studying  and sketching
birds. I had a great time as always, I can`t complain, the weather was fine , the expected bird species
to see were there, and finally I`ve been rewarded with  a series of studies done on location .
I saw for the first time in my life Collared pratincoles and enjoyed the song of the Barred warbler in particular, watching them at close quarters...
Most of birds gave me great views and made me considering to plan an other trip at the same time maybe next year...

Thylacine or Tasmanian tiger -The adventure of a study

..The Thylacine is a legendary species which lived in Australia and Tasmania and seems that is already extinct, since there is no credible evidence that the animal still exist for decades now. Attached, my efforts to depict the animal, starting with the initial pencil drawing , and showing the process step by step to the finished pen drawing. Eventually , I noticed several mistakes on his anatomy, decided to revise the image, started a couple of watercolours, and managed to complete at least one . Forgot to mention that videos taken in Hobart zoo( Tasmania) in the 30`s of last century have been a great help while creating my image. The finished watercolour , I managed eventually to complete

Thylacine painting

Extinct animals and birds are still among my favorites, and the Tasmanian tiger is surely one of them. I did start one more painting depicting the animal and though I was pleased with the background the tiger seemed to be very big for the size, with wrong proportions and facial expression. I decided to remove the tiger and repainted it over the background but much smaller. Surely not my best attempt but I know that I`ll be able to create a much better painting one day.
