Oliver Drawing:  ©2009 Lisa Ullrich

Oliver is my friend’s Eclectus Parrot.  Oliver can be quite chatty when he’s in the mood.  He barks like her dog and talks like her husband.  He takes on their exact sound and repeats words.  It’s quite amazing and entertaining!

I drew Oliver on black paper using colored pencils.  The drawing took a lot of layering of the colors to make it as bright as he is.  I find colored pencil to be a much tougher medium than graphite.  I’m happy with how he turned out and my friend was thrilled.
