Fine illustration of a Brown Thrasher (Toxostoma rufum.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Brown Thrasher was completed on 4.15.2010. Sometimes, in my rush to make drawings of as many different animals as I can, I lose sight that my intensions are to create the best illustration of whatever animal I’m working on. It seems like when I lose this perspective, I return to drawing songbirds. They always seem to center me, as they are relatively trouble-free to draw and I can’t think of one that didn’t turn out as I had hoped. The drawing is based on a photo by Eleanor Briccetti.
