Piping Plovers

I have been obsessed with piping plovers ever since I completed an endangered species poster assignment a few years ago. The piping plover is the animal I chose. Here is a video about their plight if you are interested.

Above is a study I've been working on of a chick on a rocky shore done from photo reference.

Below are some sketches. I'm planning a painting on wood.


  1. I've always loved your little birds - you do them so beautifully :)

  2. This is a really sweet image. I love the other piping plover you did with 3 eggs too.
