Spotted Pardalote

by Erica Lyn Schmidt

This charcoal drawing was made with both pencils and powdered charcoal, using erasers to draw in the lighter details. I chose to render this colorful bird in black and white to spotlight the contrast in its pattern and the negative space around him.

This piece was created for a BirdWhisperer Project monthly challenge.

I am a painter and sculptor who specializes in traditional mixed media. My artistic journey began in the field of scientific illustration, but it gradually made its way into the realm of imaginative realism (my true love at last). I love exploring the charm and whimsy of animals and characters who delight in their own little worlds, and aim to bring that joy to those who experience my work.

I share my love of art and birds as the Creative Director of the BirdWhisperer Project online art community, and my work can also be found in scientific museums, children’s books, and private collections.

In addition to creating fine art, I collaborate on many forms of illustration work with my husband Anthony J. Schmidt. We call Wisconsin our home, which we share with our mini-artist daughter Penny.
