Nuthatch by Pete Janes

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Colored pencil and ink on bristol, with background muddling in Seashore. The nuthatch is one of my favorite backyard birds, mostly because they emit little squeaks as they forage, but also for their amazing ability to seemingly defy gravity, hopping down tree trunks head-first!

“Pete Janes entertains the macro insect crowd with meticulous gouache and watercolor specimen pieces, while his more imaginary illustrations seem to be glimpses into faraway realities.”—noted art critic and Portland bum R. Terialspray

    I love that you can go from drawing tightly pencilled creepy creatures to these more softly rendered pieces, very cool :-)

  • Thanks Matt! Yes, I sometimes wonder if fans of my nature work are shocked by some of my more weird pieces . . .
