Pekin Robin

Pekin Robin

Common Name: Pekin Robin
Scientific Name: Leiothrix lutea
Exhibit: Aviary
Medium: Colored Pencil
Date finished: October 10, 2009
Observation: This cute little Robin I commonly see hopping around the bushes in the aviary. When I draw, I like to first put down a base color and then layer more colors on top for the right shade. The grey on the back has a base color of a light cool grey while the additional layers are mostly various percentages of warm grey. I can't really think of much else to say about this bird as I have not bothered to observer them as much as some other birds. They do have a nice song though.
