canvi climàtic

S'ha creat una nova web sobre canvi climàtic i el seu efecte en els ocells, i em van encarregar alguns dibuixos per il·lustrar-la . Podeu veure'n alguns exemples aquí, però us recomano visitar la web: www.ecco.cat

A new website on climate change and birds has been launched lately. I was asked to do some drawings for it. You can see a sample of them here, but I strongly recommend to check the site: www.ecco.cat

conill, becada i perdiu

Aquesta il·lustració forma part d'una senyalització en una àrea on s'ha actuat perpotenciar les poblacions d'aquestes tres espècies: conill, becada i perdiu roja.

I made this painting for a nature sign in an area improved to favor populations of these three species: Rabbit, Woodcock and Red Partridge.

B&W Gulls

Aquestes dues il·lustracions formen part de la tesis doctoral d'un bon amic. La tesis es centra en els hàbits d'alimentació de les gavines, i les il·lustracions mostren una gavina capblanca i una gavina capnegra.

Some weeks ago I was asked to paint 2 B&W drawings for the doctoral thesis of a good friend. The whole thesis is about gull feeding habits, and the illustrations show a Slender-billed Gull and a Mediterranean Gull:

Night Herons and egrets

This is another of the paintings for the sign by the river depicting some Night Herons flying:



Also for that sign, I made a composition depicting the heronry with the 4 species breeding there (Grey Heron, Night Heron, Little Egret and Cattle Egret). It is a composition using up to 10 photographs, painting over them and including some original paintings:



Below, a detail of the Little Egrets nest:

Night Heron

Next Monday I should have finnished some illustrations of birds for a sign by the river. Right now I'm working in a new style for me using both photographs and digital paintings; I'll show you 2 different examples in the coming days that will appear in the same sign as the egrets from my last post and the Night Heron below. As always, digital illustration using a pen tablet:

egrets

Right now I'm busy with uni, but I have some jobs to do, too. I'm doing some illustrations for a sign about the birds in the river that will include a composition showing the heronry that I've been monitoring for the last years. I post two of the paintings now, the rest in a few days or when the sign is finished:


Great White Egret


Cattle Egret
