Favorite Bird Artist Series - David Sibley

A new installment in this series. Here is one of David Sibley's bird illustrations. A giant in the world of birding now, David Sibley has really mastered his own style of illustration. In some ways his painting is very simple, effectively capturing the essence of a bird with few brush strokes. The real success of Sibley's illustration comes from a very sound and practiced painting technique coupled with a great ability to capture diagnostic postures, expressions and specific physical details.
