I spent a couple of hours in a Wildpark close to Munich which opened
again after months and managed to finish the attached studies of a
Peregrine falcon and a Black-chested buzzard-eagle a new species to me.
Siberian tiger portrait painted in gouache. As I did lately with the
Lanner falcon portrait ,I used only brush without initial pencil drawing
and is based on video footage taken in Munich zoo.
For those who might be interested to watch the whole video here is the Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gS5qlx2sH0
Woodchat shrike courtship. Study based on video taken lately by a good
friend in Greece. This is why I love videos, `cause I can study
movement and behaviour..Thank you very much Giorgos for allowing me to
use your footage! Fineliners & Faber Castell Pitt pens
I managed to visit the Munich zoo yesterday after months , because it was closed
due to lockdown, and even now I had to book my visit on time since there
is only a certain number of visitors per day allowed. The weather was
cold and rainy for the most part of the morning, so I had to move on
regularly and sketch as quick as I could. My studies include the female Snowy owl, budgerigars and Hartmann`s mountain zebra.
Attached some life studies I did lately. A Tawny owl, Mute swan ,Greylag goose and a Canada goose from Nymphenburg park and a common buzzard sketched today very close to Munich from a distance aided by my scope
