I just love the way this one is sitting on the branch. He was rather fun to paint with the different head angle. Really pleased with the final painting.
Ringed Kingfishers are found along the lower Rio Grande valley in south eastern Texas, through to Central America and Tierra Del Fuego in South America. They are a fairly large kingfisher measuring 40 - 41 cm in length.
Ringed Kingfisher measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Frank Vassen for the reference photo.
