287 - RED ZEBRA FINCH - DAVE EDWARDS - COLOURED PENCILS & FINELINERS - 2010 by 


AS OF 4th MAY 2011, THIS [PICTURE HAS BEEN VIEWED 541 TIMES, FAVOURITED BY 16 PEOPLE AND FEATURED ONCE.

For a long time now I have been wanting to do a painting based on one of Lance Leopold’s superb photos. I spotted one I just HAD to do – it’s a great photo and Lance gave me his permission to use it!

Here is the photo I used:

I’d like to thank Lance for his permission to use it and here is a link to his portfolio
so you can see his marvellous photos.

Thanks again Lance :)

I used coloured pencils and fineliners in my own whimsical way for the background. I didn’t alter the bird too much though. Sorry the photo is of poor quality; there is actually more detail in the drawing itself.

FEATURED BY JOURNAL JUNKIES – 26th January 2010

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    WONDERFUL work, Dave!

  • Thanks Catherine. I wasn’t sure if I’d spoiled it by adding my little bits around the broder .. plus … the photos is poor as it doesn’t show the shading on the bird’s chest.

  • It’s just occurred to me that as I have big ears and whiskers I am more entitled to be called Bunny than you are :)

    It’s beautiful…what did u expect…….i love how u framed the primary focus of the piece……the feather boarding looking things…..brings your eyes right back to the center attraction………which is beautiful as well………

  • I do tend to experiment … same with food … I can’t resist adding something extra. Thanks for the nice comment.
