Bird studies from Birdpark Olching

I spent few hours in a bird park close to Munich today, which is open only over the weekend from April to November . I haven`t been there for ages, this was actually my second visit in five years,, and I was happily surprised to see bird species from all over the world. I promised myself to go back with colours next time..

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.

Riesa city-Saxony-life studies

I`m just back from a short family holiday trip to Riesa city( close to Dresden). Despite the extreme hot weather I managed to go outside and do some fieldwork as  well a more detailed architectural study of the Trinitatis church , the most characteristic of the city.
The old cemetery provided a rich bird life with golden orioles, Green woodpeckers, a lot of  Wood pigeons and a variety of songbirds like Common redstart. Brown hares were also common there and Red kites flew above the city all the time..
