Red-Billed Hornbill

About the Project

I met this little chap and his mate in the Gambia, both members of the species Tockus erythrorhynchus, or red-billed hornbills.  They had a fondness for cashew nuts and followed me around for them.  They are beautiful, inquisitive little birds, and I enjoyed making his feathers look like you could reach out and touch their softness.

Red-billed hornbills are large birds at around 42cms, but are one of the smaller hornbills. Whilst in The Gambia we caught site of the large ground-dwelling hornbills. Trust me, they are a lot bigger than these little characters!

I painted him in a style that remimded me of Victorian animal studies, with no background to distract from the main element.
