Fine art illustration of a Wood Thrush (Hylocichla mustelina.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Wood Thrush illustration was commissioned by Stackpole Books for Laura Erickson’s 101 Ways to Help Birds . The inked version was completed in 2005 and the digital tinting added in 2007. The expression of this songbird is amazing! it seems to fix the viewer in its eyes and holds a person there. This was one of the earliest bird images I had originally designed as only an ink illustration, but later added color to via Photoshop.
