Greater Flamingo from zoo by Maria Elena, Italy

Another sketches from the zoo Parco NaturaViva (VR) Italy, the subject now is Flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber). Watercolours and pencil Fabriano sketchbook 200 g/mq.
I hope, in the breeding season, to sketch Flamingo in nature!!
I like this strange and contortionist bird, his colours, his elegance.


  1. Wonderful! I love their calligraphic necks!

  2. Che belli Elena!! Sono stata ieri a Orbetello a fotografare e disegnare i fenicotteri. A breve i miei disegni!

  3. Do you draw them and paint them on the spot? I love your work!
