Birds for a Monastery in China! | Watercolour Illustrations

Asian Barred Owlet

Grey Chinned Minivet

Little Egret

Oriental Magpie

Sea Eagle

Red Whiskered Bulbul

These birds were painted for the newly-opened-to-the-public Tsz Shan Monastery, for use in their guidebook. The brief dictated that the birds be as realistic as possible whilst maintaining my illustration style - it was wonderful to be able to concentrate on capturing the lines and colours of the birds in detail.

I was pretty flattered when the art director for this particular project asked to purchase a few of the originals from this series. An added bonus! I will be adding the remaining four birds to my etsy shop for sale soon.

Thanks for stopping by!
