Blue Crowned Mealy Parrot
The mealy parrot is considered the gentle giant of the Amazon. These social birds form lifelong mates and are generally not aggressive. While they are generally not noisy they can be loud when they want to – being heard up to a mile away.
This drawing was created from a photograph by Luis Ruiz. I was drawn to the bird’s stunning colors and slightly ruffled feathers. He appeared to have such a personality – like he wanted to jump out of the image and tell you a story.
This is an original drawing done on Arches Hot Press paper using artist quality lightfast colored pencils.
