It didn’t take me long to find a photo I liked on Something To Draw today. I’m honestly not sure what it was about this parrot that captured my attention. Usually when I draw animals I choose ones with expressive faces or one that are in an interesting pose. From an objective standpoint there really doesn’t seem to be anything too interesting about this particular parrot though. I can’t pinpoint any particular feature that stands out. Yet, for whatever reason, something just drew me to him.
The photo was submitted by Marcus Vinicius Lameiras who has many more quite evocative photos on his flickr page. Some of them are really quite incredible. Maybe I’ll remember him and pick one or two others to draw in the future. For whatever reason I am still quite partial to this parrot though, simple as he is.
