If you are interested in a print, I can have more like this made. A photo quality print on matte stock costs $35. A framed and matted version can be picked up for $60. Just let me know what you want at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out.
But like I said above the coquette was just the beginning. Maybe it's the fact that the birds of Peru are so colorful and amazing to look at that I just want to make my own renditions. Right after I finished the first one I started working on a second bird, that was even more stunning than the Coquette--a Golden Tanager:
Right now it's about 50% finished. I have a lot of details to add but got a good start on it. The Golden Tanager is an absolutely striking species and the color is so vibrant. I've worked on this one an hour or two most nights this week and will probably finish it up this weekend.
I also started working on a Peruvian specialty this week--a bird with one of the coolest names, the Bearded Mountaineer! Cool right? It's a species of hummingbird endemic to southern Peru and has some very stunning but simple features. This one is about 10% finished so it's probably over a week out, but you can see the various states from beginning to end with what I've done so far.
