Pencil Drawing, Nasca

I drew this bad boy over on my Galapagos site.  Click to see the colored pencil piece done with Prismacolor pencils on toned paper.

Nasca and other boobies will present their love interest with a pebble or a shell as a gift…apparently he wanted to be prepared.  This photo was taken on Suarez Point, Espanola, Galapagos.

They are gorgeous birds.  They can be a challenge to draw because of their unusual proportions.  The neck always fights me because I want to thin it out more like a swan’s.

Hope you hop over there for a look at the drawing!  There are other art pieces and photography on that site as well.  Enjoy!
