Artist's notes:

shorebird or wader fine art illustrations

Snakes give me problems. Not the snakes themselves, but their anatomy. Specifically, the coloration pattern and the symmetry of the scales. When I begin a drawing of a snake, I know that it will take me longer than most other animals. This is because the patterns of the scales naturally follow the contours of the reptile's body. So the equasion is a simple one: render the scales correctly, and lay them down in order and the drawing will succeed. Fail to do this, and draw the scales incorrectly and the drawing will fail. I've had to start over on a few of these snake drawings you see here. Some others never made it anywhere except into the trash. More often, however, I am able to create an accurate drawing of these reptiles. At this time I don't have any immediate plans to add another snake here (but I'm sure I will at some point.) If you have a suggestion for a specific species of please send me an email

Information about snakes:

Snakes are legsless animals of the Suborder Serpentes. They are a very successful group of animals, and inhabit many different kinds of environments both terrestrial and marine. The evolution of snakes isn't very well known, due to the lack of many fossils because the skeletons of snakes are relatively fragile and scatter easily. There are some fossils indentified at snakes from about 150 million years ago. Some snakes like boas and pythons have small vestigial hind limbs. The skin of a snake is covered with scales. Despite popular belief they are not slimy. They must molt in order lose old and worn skin and also to shed parasites like ticks and mites. Snakes do not have eyelids, but rather are covered with clear scales. They have a very sensitive sense of smell, and use it to track their prey. They also are able to use vibrations in the ground to detect when their prey is approaching. Snakes are strictly carnivorous. Many of the snakes use different types of venom to paralyze their prey. Others, like boas, use constriction to kill their prey. Snakes do not have teeth and therefore have to swallow their prey whole. To do this they have jaws that can unhinge from each other, and therefore they can consume very large prey. After feeding, snakes might not to eat for many days or even weeks.
