Pencils in Paradise

Even pencil artists vacation. And when they do, they take their pencils with them. These pieces were the result of a vacation in Costa Rica – aptly named, Rich Coast for a reason. These parrots were wild, free to come and go as they please. Each of these pieces took in excess of 100 hours – the only way to get the rich detail of not only the subjects, but the foliage in the background.
