Tawny frogmouth card (Podargus strigoides) by 

Black ink and WN watercolour on 300g smooth hot pressed Arches watercolour paper. Original size 240 × 200mm.

I photographed the reference shot for this painting in the early afternoon at Rocky Creek Dam on the edge of Whian Whian State Forest, NSW. First one frogmouth, then the other eyed me suspiciously before deciding I wasn’t a threat and going back to sleep! I suspect they were juveniles.

See the original painting

I’m passionate about ecology, wildlife epidemiology and environmental conservation. I hope that I can raise awareness about the conservation of biodiversity through my art and research (currently researching the devastating fungal disease, chytridiomycosis, which is threatening frogs worldwide). Help spread the word about conservation!
