Fine art illustration of an American Coot (Fulica americana.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The American Coot was completed on 1.5.2012. It is the 2nd drawing of the new year and better than the previous one, I’m glad to say. In a bizarre way, when I’m out walking or hiking if I see an animal I haven’t drawn, it compels me to return to the drawing board and crank out an illustration immediately. For years I’ve seen coots in the estuaries, lakes and bays of San Francisco area and I’ve finally gotten around to drawing one. The image is based on a photo by Phil Brown.
