Fine art illustration of a Great Grey Shrike (Lanius excubitor.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Great Grey or Northern Shrike illustration was completed on 1.13.2013. I’ve been meaning to draw a shrike for some time. They are such interesting and lovely songbirds. Again, it can be difficult drawing a mostly white subject with a black medium (ink) but there is enough variation in the coloration of the bird that it makes for a good species to draw regardless. The drawing is based on a photo by and was used with permission.
