Picus Viridis by Lhuin Picus Viridis by Lhuin
Just found this drawing in my files, and I realised I never uploaded it! Did this last year for my dad as a birthday present :) 
We both like birds, and had never seen any green woodpeckers in real life. When I moved to the UK in September 2012 I saw one of these the next week! I took some photos and told my dad about it, was pretty cool :D his birthday is in May and he said he'd like if I could paint him a green woodpecker! I think it's at his workplace at the moment.

I think I used watercolours and coloured pencils on this, on A4 size paper again. I still like this even though it's older so wanted to upload it! :meow:

I love the detail of the feathers and tree bark.

Very nice! I wouldn't mind heading over to Europe to see the land. Thankfully I have folks in Norway.:) (Smile)

Woodpeckers are amazing, I remember seeing a red-spotted one at a friend's house and they're just beautiful, especially the males with the red spot on the back of their heads. Never seen a green one, though. lol

They're really cool yeah! And pretty markings :aww: I've seen a black woodpecker too in Finland (I don't think there's any in the UK, whereas I don't think there's any green ones in Finland XD). But the black woodpecker was really awesome, almost creepy in a way haha!

Haha, Black Woodpeckers do look badass. I like 'creepy'-looking birds like that, it's why I'm drawn to the Corvidae family out of all the bird families. I also love blackbirds as well, they have such a pretty song. c:
