Draw-a-Bird-Day: Rufous-tailed jacamar


I was happy to see that a bunch of people posted bird drawings today. So, I thought I’d join in the fun with a Rufous-tailed jacamar. I drew it back in February from Audubon’s Bird: The Definitive Visual Guide and added a green background with Photoshop today.


    1. Thanks for your lovely comment, Jet :-). So cool that you recently posted about your real-life, Rufous-tailed jacamar sighting. Your adventure stories are like dreams which could become real some day. Some day…


    1. Thank you, Tanja :-). I’m sure that if you drew a duck it wouldn’t look like a stick figure ;-). It takes a lot of practice and handy tips learned from other people to draw what one sees as one sees it. It is surprisingly hard… more for some people… because the brain likes to save time by abstracting out details.
