Fine art illustration of a Purple Finch (Carpodacus purpureus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Purple Finch illustration was completed on 6.13.2012. This marks the fourth songbird I’ve drawn for the 50 State Project – it being the state bird of New Hampshire. I love the colors in this bird, along with the lovely mottled patterns on the body and the split coloration on the wings. It really was a pleasure to illustrate this beautiful songbird. The drawing i based on a photo by Don Delaney.
