Green Macaw – Copan, Honduras
From Copan, Honduras
Scratchboard 9×12, colored in with Ampersand inks.
By the ancient Maya ruins here, I could see these large birds squawking above the trees. One made bold to perch near where I stood, inspecting my photographic paraphernalia with studied curiosity. I took several photos, also drawing some quick sketches noting the light and shade below the thick canopy. I spent the larger part of last week’s evenings and this weekend to complete this work.
