“Ooh! More nectar!” Rainbow Lorikeet, Daniel D. Brown, 2014, Pan Pastel and Pastel Pencil on Pastelmat

I really got a great bunch of photographs from my most recent trip to the National Aviary with my fiance. Needless to say, they have been a huge inspiration in my pastel drawings. This is one of their famed Rainbow Lorikeets (you can feed them nectar!).

This piece is 240cm x 300cm (~9.5×12”)

I love the look he was giving me.
