"Too Close for Comfort" Pintail Drake by Blaine Billman

Lot 48: "Too Close for Comfort" Pintail Drake by Blaine Billman

Auction Date: Oct 25, 2014

Estimate: $400 - $600

Description: "Art of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest" -Wildlife Art by Blaine Billman- "Too Close For Comfort" Pintail Drake by Blaine Billman, signed and numbered 35/650 (pen and ink/graphite12-1/2 x 15-1/2 Drawing time-327 hours) Blaine Billman has been studying the people and cultures of the Pacific Northwest for many years and has blended their dynamic art styles with his contemporary pen and ink techniques. These one of a kind images offer a unique perspective on the bold and graceful art of this region. His intricate and highly detailed drawings are done using a crow quill pen and a very time-consuming pointillism technique. Drawing times for an individual piece average about 250 hours and require infinite patience. It is important to be true to the spirit as well as the idea so research for his work is extensive. His unique style of blending the spiritual with the natural aspects of his subjects show a deep respect for the cultures of the Northwest Coast "First Peoples" and make a valuable addition to any collection. Blaine's wildlife pen and inks have been awarded Best of Show at every major wildlife art show in the U.S. that presents awards and his work has graced the covers and pages of several publications including Outdoor America, Wildlife Art News, and Idaho Wildlife. Blaine Billman's pen and inks have also raised thousands of dollars in support of wildlife and environmental projects through such organizations as Ducks Unlimited, the Nature Conservancy, and the Isaac Walton League....

"Breaking Cover" - Bobwhite Quail by Blaine Billman

Lot 8: "Breaking Cover" - Bobwhite Quail by Blaine Billman

Auction Date: Oct 25, 2014

Estimate: $800 - $1,200

Description: "Art of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest" "Breaking Cover" - Bobwhite Quail (pen and ink 12 x 21 Drawing Time - 587 hours) Limited Edition Print Signed and numbered 193/650 Below: Note from Artist This scene gives you a ground level view of flushing quail. A covey will often hold until you are right on top of them and then burst up in all directions. I've talked to people who've actually had them fly right into their chest! That would wake you up in a hurry. Some drawings have their own surprises that you just don't realize until they are finished. I really noticed that about the natural camouflage of these Bobwhites. Quail rely heavily on being able to hide in brushy cover and this piece shows how the feather shapes and patterns blend in well with the patterns of the bark and leaves. Imagine how tough it would be to find these little fellows if you were a fox or a weasel. Nature can be so clever. "Breaking Cover" was one of the most difficult and complex drawings I have done and won several Best of Show awards. It is available as a signed and numbered limited edition of 650 prints....
