In my continuing fascination with birds I have been revisiting the book “Drawn from Paradise” by David Attenborough and Errol Fuller. An examination of the historical depictions of this colorful bird species .The plumage of these natives of New Guinea can be pretty spectacular. I recently made a watercolor sketch from a photograph.
Then I decided to make a larger design. The goal was to create the effect of an airy jungle canopy populated with these fantastical birds. This was the result.
