This is “Killer,” a green-winged macaw that resides at the National Aviary. This is my first proper attempt at using PanPastels on PastelMat. I’m fairly happy with how it turned out. It’s based on a photo I took at the National Aviary.

The original drawing was SOLD (donated to the National Aviary for the Wings and Wildlife Artshow and Benefit Auction).
