For me there is nothing more Beautiful than nestlings. None more so than Wader Chicks that seem to have their a beauty unique to themselves! Not only do they breed in equally beautiful environments but are extremely hard to see which makes it all the more fantastic when you lay eyes on them!
A lifelong dream of mine and my best friend Rael's is to visit the High Arctic to see Nesting Waders and Wader Nestlings but as I'm not made of money I have to settle with the next best thing and that's illustrating them.
I thought I would Illustrate these Turnstone Chicks to override the winter blues that were eating away at me last year. Although my drawing may not be scientifically correct to a keen arctic botanist makes no odds to me as sometimes the beauty of illustration is the ability to bend the truth that photographers struggle to achieve.
If anyone one is looking for someone to illustrate a wader chick or nestling identification guide I would be more than happy to and can't think of anything in life more enjoyable!
The Process of EGG - FLEDGLING is just Phenomenal!
(In reality this drawing is a lot more rich in colour which unfortunately hasn't come across from the scanning it)- This piece is also FOR SALE if anyone is interested- email : email@example.com
