Today it is another page, in fact the first page, from my wren booklet. There is a link below to see all six pages.
‘ Hoot’ This is in watercolour and ink, it started as a doodle, can you see the owl?
Today it is my Starlings, I love their chatter and miss them in the summer. Come November there will be huge flocks of them in the fields and if they are disturbed they rise together and stream overhead with a deafening beating of wings.
A peacock. There is a long story behind this painting and I spoke about it in an earlier blog. For those interested….https://wp.me/p7Ohdq-9h
Another page from my little Wren book. There are at least two wrens in the garden, they are usually seen searching for insects in the nooks and crannies of the old stone wall. This one is in watercolour and ink.
Today it is Archie, we named him three years ago when he started coming to the garden to be fed. So his name has nothing to do with a certain baby. He taps on the door to get my attention and then eats sunflower hearts from my hand.
Today it is a watercolour of a robin sitting in a holly bush with ivy growing through it’s branches.
Today it is a wren from a series I did a few years back, this one is in watercolour and ink.
This is Albert or it might be Bathsheba, I can’t tell the difference. It is one of the pair of wood pigeons that walk past my window as I work. I can see them out of the corner of my eye but the moment I look up at them they seem to know and sidle off, trying to look innocent.
This is Khan, he is a golden eagle, we met him on a trip to the Cornish Birds of Prey Centre. He was one of the many beautiful birds there and is painted in watercolour.
