Quail Puffs

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size:15″h X 19″w, 2014.

I saw these bachelor male Quail on a frosty winter morning, and they were so puffed out to insulate themselves that they almost looked like round balls. I thought it was both interesting and cute.

I saw these two cute, chubby quail perched atop my bird feeder one winter’s day. The colors of the feeder were drab, so I perked this watercolor up by making it a festive holiday colored image.

Farm Field Quail

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 9″h x 12″w, 1993.

I painted this male and female California quail perched upon some weathered fence boards I saw on Holzhauser Rd, Scott Valley, Siskiyou County, California. I liked the composition created by the fence boards and thought the quail made a perfect accent for the boards.
