Green Bee Eater painting in acrylic + bird paintingThis is a painting I did an interpretation of a Green Bee Eater. It was first drawn and colored in pencils and then painted with acrylics. It may not be a perfect interpretation but its a start. I love birds of all kinds and am so inspired to draw and paint more of them. They might just be one of my new muses! If you want to see what one looks like and find out about these amazing creatures visit the link above when you are done here. They are a bird indigenous to Africa, Arabia, Asia and India and Vietnam. I found like quick video of one & thought you might enjoy it. Wouldn't it be amazing to see one in person?
