(c) Aall Forms of Life “Patient Quail”


"The Patient Quail" is an accurate scientific illustration composed of watercolor and graphite. I had fun illustrating the Gambel's quail chicks doing their best to test their mother's patience. There are so many illustrations of quail families lined up nicely in a line following one another in an orderly fashion, when in reality, as with humans, parenthood can be a completely chaotic experience! These little families are a joy to observe in my Sonoran Desert backyard, so I hope you may enjoy them in your home as well. Painted by Tucson artist Nathalie Aall. 

This digital print will come with sturdy backing protected in an archival clear bag. So it is ready for gifting as is or prepped for DIY/Professional framing. 

Each print is hand-signed by the artist and includes a short description of the artwork and its biological significance.

Available in 2 sizes: 5X7 inches and 8X10 inches

For shipping protection, these prints will be wrapped in a clear plastic sleeve and shipped flat in a sturdy mailer, be aware that more environmentally friendly, up-cycled packaging may be used in shipping!

About the Artist

Hello, I'm Nathalie Aall, I was inspired to start Aall Forms of Life as my approach for meshing biology and art to communicate the beauty and importance of the natural world.

As a wildlife biologist, I have been fortunate enough to conduct research in remote rainforests all over the world to observe unbelievably beautiful forms of life. Knowing that I couldn't give these complex and unique creatures justice with a simple photograph, I delved into the art of scientific illustration and obtained my graduate certificate in Natural Science Illustration in 2016.​

With Aall Forms of Life I drive to create works that can help increase public awareness of often overlooked animals and encourage sustainability and conservation efforts in viewers both young and old.
