You can usually see this bird with other members of the Ibis (White Ibis) family, but it will stick out of the crowd because of its dark feathers. If you catch this ibis in the right lighting, a portion of its feathers have an iridescent glow that is reminiscent of beautiful jewels! Like a Wild Turkey, the feathers are black but reflect light creating a beautiful rainbow of colors. This etching uses 5 large copper plates to give the bird a rich deep tonal quality. It is life size and hand painted with transparent watercolors like all my etchings.
