Sphen – Daniel D. Brown, 2017, Intarsia

This is my second attempt at wood intarsia. I designed this based on a new resident of the National Aviary – an African penguin named “Sphen.” It was constructed from Walnut, Aspen, Cherry, Red Oak, Yellow Pine, and Maple log.

My latest pencil drawing is of a “Bateleur,” an African eagle, that I saw at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro. This drawing took me a lot longer than any of my previous recent drawings – I spent almost two weeks on it (2-3 hours a day here and there)  just trying to get all the feather details as close to accurate as I could.

Original drawing SOLD.
