Fine art illustration of a Southern Brown Kiwi (Apteryx australis.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Southern Brown Kiwi was completed on 7.21.2013. A friend of mine recently moved to New Zealand, and contacted me after many years to ask about drawing a Kiwi for her. I had been considering drawing one of these odd little birds for some time and this request followed quickly on the heels of another contact asking me about it. So, last weekend I was able to find the time and inspiration to complete this drawing. I believe this is the first animal native to New Zealand that I’ve drawn.
