Fine art illustration of a Sun Parakeet or Sun Conure (Aratinga solstitialis.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Sun Parakeet or Sun Conure was completed on 9.10.2013. A good friend of mine had pointed out these colorful birds in a pet shop we were in, and suggested I draw one. That was about three years ago, if not longer. But I have hundreds of drawings that I intend to complete at some point, so sometimes subjects get pushed to the back, until the time is right. The drawing is based on a photo by Kelly Boytell and was used with her permission. The drawing will be used as part of a collage of tropical birds of Amazonia.
