Artist's notes:

western grebe thumbThe Western Grebe was completed on 4.23.2010. These birds are often spotted in the San Francisco Bay, and it was a pleasure to draw one. The patterns of the feathers proved a little tricky, but I ended up using them to help define the contours of the body and wing. I wasn't sure what to do with the water, so I somewhat mineralized it, as I hope the focus will be mainly on the bird itself.

Information about the Western Grebe:

Western Grebes are the largest of the North American grebes. It is often found in large inland lakes, saltwater beaches and bays, and coastal freshwater marshes during the breeding season. It is know for a spectaculars courtship display, where both birds will rear up on their legs and splash lightly across the water's surface. Western Grebes feed on fish, small crustaceans, invertebrates and amphibians. They are highly gregarious, wintering in large flocks and nest colonies, although during the summer months they are often encountered in small numbers or even solitary individuals.
