Cygnet…

Took a whole heap of fabulous photos on the weekend, dearly wanted to paint one of the cygnets I took pics of. This little watercolour is 3 x 4″, I’m definitely going to paint a larger one, most enjoyable

Moving in with some finer details…
-Oil on canvas board 10×12″

It’s been a while since my head was in this sort of space, I used to paint a lot of this kind of thing, very much enjoying the challenge of making something look ‘real’, I’ve been working on this one, on and off, for a couple of days…

Fairy Wrens…

Australia has some truly¬†beautiful birds, but these little Wrens have captured my heart, I enjoy watching them, drawing them and painting them, love their busy-ness, their character, they’re always on the go and highly entertaining. I painted these three watercolours over the past 2-3 days, they’ve inspired me…
