Danny the Woodpecker

Wyverns Fighting

A character illustration for a children’s book ‘The Farmer and the Woodpecker.’ Danny is a Golden-fronted Woodpecker looking for a home. The Farmer at first does not welcome Danny the Woodpecker but eventually comes to see him as useful after he helps with problems on the farm such as woodworm and weevils.

The golden-fronted Woodpecker is a very beautiful bird and the challenge with these illustrations was to stay true to the spirit of the bird while also giving it a bit more expression.

These illustrations of Danny the Golden-fronted woodpecker are in watercolour.
