Coppersmith barbet (Psilopogon haemacephalus)

With this digital painting, I tried to imitate the look and feel of traditional gouache paintings.

The Coppersmith barbet is a very colourful, small bird. It is eating mostly fruits and nesting in cavities. The call of this bird is a very characteristic, repetitive short vocalisation, reminds a bit of a coppersmith hammering the metal.
