No field work at all ,at the moment, therefore commissioned

Once again, studies from my recent repeated visits to our local zoo.
I must say that I'm pleased with the results, maybe was the frustration
which forced me to be much more concentrated and successfully creative.
Frustrated for not having the chance to be outside to sketch for months, due
to my duties as freelance illustrator and father.

Development














The lack of time to be in the wild, forced me to browse
through my sketchbooks and re-work and develop sketches in to
real paintings . The development of the pictures will be shown
regularly in this Blog.

New Illustrations

Having no time to sketch from nature, I decided to present
here my latest Illustrations, published this year in Limicola
the German field Ornithology magazine,showing the ground display of
the Calandra lark, and the two others depicting Yellow-billed Loons
under seawatching conditions.

Once again captive birds sketched in a "Wildpark" close to Munich.
The birds were kept in such a distance from the visitors, which forced
me to use my scope to sketch them!

My latest fieldwork has been completely executed
in Nürnberg Zoo, having captive birds as subjects.

Last week I managed to visit our local zoo twice,
and I returned at home with the sketches presented
below. For the horse I decided to use acrylics, for the
first time in fieldsketching, which I regret not because
of the results, but of the waste of time.
I feel that watercolours is the ideal medium , at least
for me, to draw on location.
