  • Kingfisher pyrography with watercolour paint.

    Hi Guys
    This one is a kingfisher. Was quite difficult to do this one as the colour is quite intense and the markings are minimal with very fine feathers.

    Wasn'y happy with the pictures I took last night so got some better ones today in better light.

    It took 5 differnt colours to get the blue parts looking right with some of it being fluoro watercolour paints.

    Might've been difficult, but you've done a suburb job on it nonetheless!
    If you're looking for me, you'll find me in a pile of wood chips somewhere...

          Hi Guys thanks for the nice commets.

          Hi Joe
          I took some better pictures today in better light. All dark lines outlining the feathers are pyrography. Colour has only been added to fill the gaps in the pyrography. Some of it is very fine and quite hard to see as the nature of the feathers on these birds are that they are very very fine and indistinct which is pretty hard to re-create. If you look really carefuly at the area of orange under the eye you will see just the faintest hint of anoutline to the feather. This is as close as I could get it to the real thing. Some lines you cant see unless you get it in just the right angle of light.

          The new photos show it off a bit better.
