A New Site

Due to some technical problem, my account has been turned down and caused the temporary disappearance of  both of my blogs. I decided, however, to migrate to a new site, merging both photography and artworks altogether. 

Please visit my new site here ayuwat.blogspot.com

As for my email address, please contact me through the new address 

I'm terribly sorry for the inconvenience and 
thank you for your continuing support.

Black-faced Spoonbill

I made a trip to Fukuoka Prefecture during the new year vacation in hope of finding the globally endangered Black-faced Spoonbill. I did see them in a good number but unfortunately, they were far out in the middle of the huge river, so I couldn't get any decent photo of them. I came back and started painting the spoonbills in the way that I wanted to see them. That's one good thing about being able to draw. I used acrylic colour on 300g paper.

Guide Book Illustration

It's been a long time since the last post. Even though I didn't do much painting during the last few months, I was inspired by the idea of guide book illustrations and started to try a few. I picked up the birds that I recently saw in Fukuoka during the New Year vacation, which are Falcated Duck and Baikal Teal, along with one of my most favourite bird families, the needletails, as the subjects. It wasn't too easy, especially to bring out the precise body shape and structure. I remember getting an advice from a well known wildlife artist in Thailand that studying the anatomy of birds can help a lot in your drawing. I can totally understand him now.

Falcated Duck (Anas falcata)
Baikal Teal (Anas formosa)
