New Work - natural science

More birds. For this ecological habitat illustration, I've focused on a female mallard. The pattern of the feathers gave me the direction of the style I chose. The dragonfly is found here in N.Y. and the frogs are bullfrogs. My thanks go out to Eric, Kristine and Esther at the NY Botanical Gardens for helping me to identify the plants. I love working in this style, but I must get a stylus and program to use it with. I'm still using a mouse!
