These macaws were photographed at the Jurong Bird Park in December last year. I made a print of the digital image intending to paint these magnificent birds someday. Today, I thought I would just do an ink drawing to understand the form, texture and colour tones before I commit to painting with either oil or acrylic. The drawing enabled me to discover the intricacies of the layers of feathers and that there are really more colours than what the eye sees at a glance. These birds are really examples of the endless wonders that nature possesses.
