Geotrygon purpurata by Kathleen Dunn(8 in. x 8 in. | Oil on canvas | ID#3835)
Family: COLUMBIDAE | Conservation Status: Endangered | Population Trend: decreasing
So sad that this beautiful Dove from Ecuador is on the endangered list. l enjoyed studying and then painting all the subtle variations from peach on its neck to the blues on it's head and tail and into the purples and red-rusts on the wings. Only the creator could imagine such magical colors and combine them in such an exquisite creature.
