Kingfisher

“Kingfisher” Artist Susan Feniak. Watercolor and ink on paper. I was happy to spot a pair of Kingfishers near our boat this weekend. They were busily doing what they do best, fishing. They sit and watch the water then of a sudden will dive beak first into the water. Usually loners like our neighborhood heron a pair seemed like a bonus. Next I will have to attempt painting the local raptor an Osprey.

  1. Nice Kingfisher, I can see you really took the time to get the lighting right on the eye. I also like how you can see your pen strokes, and the texture on the birds feathers.

    I saw a Belted Kingfisher for the first time this summer using my binoculars. I agree with Deborah, they do not like to sit still very long!
    Your painting is fabulous Susan!! 💗💙❤️

  3. I love this! It took me years to nail a good photo of a Belted Kingfisher. They’re so skittish here. Seeing two that stayed still long enough for you to paint is amazing!
