Papuan Hornbills

I often make a drawing study about birds, flowers and human figures. The following picture is a sketch of Papuan hornbills (Rhyticeros plicatus) that I saw when I visited District Kais in the southern region of Sorong. These big birds were considered by local people as the Symbol of True Love.

To make this drawing I used charcoal pencil. It gave me darker color. But later before uploading it into this blog, I did some processing in Adobe Photoshop to add some colors on the heads of the birds. Blyth's hornbills can be seen not only in New Guinea but also in the surrounding region and islands in the South Pacific.
If you are interested in taking birdwatching tour in Klasow valley of Sorong regency of West Papua province - Indonesia, just contact me by email to:
The above sketch is now available as t-shirt and many other products in zazzle store:
