Gouache, Watercolor, and Pencil Bird Prints to support Scholarships

© Masked Yellowthroat (Geothlypis acquinoctialis) done in gouache on Russel Flint hand-made watercolor paper on board in 1971. By Godfrey Bourne, biologist.


Since December, the part-time artist and full-time biologist, Dr. Godfrey Bourne (a native of Guyana, South America) at the University of Missouri-St. Louis has sold display-quality prints of his original paintings and sketches of birds. Proceeds benefit the Biology Graduate Student Association at the university. The group is setting aside money to fund a new program that will enable graduate students to mentor undergraduate students while doing field research, such as gathering and identifying plant samples, researching changes to the environment and studying habitats of wild animals. 18 prints are available for purchase online ranging in price from $15 to $30, using a variety of mediums, including watercolor, pencil, and gouache.
