These pieces of wood were bought from my local sawmill, such beautiful grains and patterning. The first piece I have completed is of a group of Long Tailed Tits, I loved the idea of using the knotted hole through the centre as a perch for the birds to be on. One of the other pieces will probably have a study of moths painted on, maybe the Hawkmoths I think!
Turnstones at Titchwell, a common wader but one that is striking in summer plumage, the mixed tones of brown, black and white really stand out, love to see them scurrying around at the sea front in Sheringham.
Sadly a bird you don't always see a lot, the Tree Sparrow, I have been fortunate to of seen a number and photograph them before moving to Norfolk.
I love the colour and tones of the Brambling, as with the Tree Sparrow and Turnstones I kept the background subdued so as not to detract from the subject.
Me posing with the Brambling and Tree Sparrow paintings to show the size.
Gouache painting of a flock of Avocets, I also painted a similar group of Avocet but with just a monochrome look by only painting the black parts, regardless of no other detailing it is instantly recognisable as these iconic birds.
