Winter skylark

Skylarks are usually seen singing above fields and meadows, so my first attempts with one in the snow looked totally out of place. After a few sketches I decided to darken the bird and blur some of the snow flakes, which made the snow much more convincing.

Kingfisher

Another illustration for Bo's book - a Kingfisher. This gemstone of a bird is a real eyecatcher in the dull Swedish winter.
