My cute little study species for the past year, the Red-capped Plover (Charadrius ruficapillus
)! This is a male; the females are a bit duller (more brown where the reds are).
So it's been a pretty awesome 12 months or so, or fieldwork and writing up an 85 page thesis (~16,000 words). But I am DONE now, such a good feeling haha
I painted this a couple of days after handing in my work, as a thank-you to my supervisor. Doing paintings in any traditional form are super rare for me O_o and this is pretty much my second watercolour ever (my first was back in 2002 O_o), so I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
Anyway, hopefully I will be submitting a lot more now that I have time on my hands
Looking forward to it!!Painting done my me, Laura X Tan aka. =elexti
