Strix varia
2019, Graphite and Watercolor

The sketch is made from direct observation while birding in Maryland.

With binoculars and sketchbooks, the artist goes on a hike to sketch birds from life. Owling is especially fun! I also love attending raptor education outreach programs to get close and personal with owls in various stages of rehab. By observing from life, scientific illustrators and nature artists catch more details by drawing and writing about animals and plants.

Keeping a field journal develops deeper understanding of the natural world and reinforces the illustrator’s observation and story-telling skills.

Why Scientific Illustration?

Scientific illustration plates are used in many parks, books, and field guides. It is important that illustrators understand the subject matter, so it’s very helpful to make small studies and sketches to study and understand the birds’ plumage, bill shape and size, and posture.

5″ x 7″ Archival Quality Prints available. $15 matted print. Frame not included.
