Fine art illustration of a Hoatzin (Opisthocomus hoazin.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Hoatzin was completed on 8.1.2014. I was putting together a collage of some of the more iconic animals native to the Orinoco River Valley and learned about the Hoatzin. Within moments of seeing photos of this wonderful looking bird I knew I was going to have to draw it. It looks like a Muppet to me! It’s a wonderful example of the richness and diversity of life in that area of the world. The drawing is based on a photo by Pat Gaines and was used with his permission.
