Tern - 6" x 8"- Digital over graphite by Greg Newbold
Another in the Egg book series. Terns lay their eggs in plain view right on the sand with little to camouflage them beyond their speckled pattern and coloration. The biggest challenge in this one was effectively mimicking the texture of the sand and the subtle changes in color. Here is the drawing.
I have been making art for as long as I can remember. These days I work in acrylic paint or Photoshop when creating illustrations for magazines, children's book publishers and advertising clients. I have even been given some cool awards for it. Lately, I am loving oil painting out of doors and for galleries.
