The White Dove by Amy E. Fraser. This is an expressive dove portrait in shades of peach, black and white with bold purple eyes complimented with a salmon pink textural background.
Throughout history the white dove has long been considered a bird of peace. It is depicted as a monument in more than 30 cities around the world. Doves are resourceful birds and live in almost every environment in the world. They often live in wooded areas, but they can also live in man-made structures like buildings in cities. Pure white doves are rarely seen in nature, and could actually be white pigeons instead. Whether a common ground dove or an exotic Inca, all doves have relatively small heads in comparison to their bodies and small, narrow bills. They have short legs and walk as if their feet are tender which causes their heads to bob back and forth. These birds have fairly long tails with distinct color patterns that are useful in identifying the various species. A half dozen species of doves are common to North America; there are 35 recognized colors of the Ringneck Dove alone. Most common colors are shades of gray, brown, peach and white as depicted in this portrait. Doves are known for their powerful, precise flight patterns and the whirling sound created by their wings; mourning doves can reach speeds up to 55 miles per hour.
