Fine art illustration of a Willet (Tringa semipalmata.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Willet was completed on 1.29.2014. Just a few days ago I took a ride on the San Francisco Bay in my friend’s new boat. It is a great place to birdwatch, and my friend and I spent a lovely afternoon, binoculars in hand, watching all the wonderful wildlife. At one point a group of birds flew past, and I realized that it was a group of Willets, which I had considered drawing some time ago but had tabled for some reason. I went back over my reference photos and found a great image taken by Ron Wolf, who graciously allowed me to use it to create this drawing.
