I’ve been very busy recently, having to adopt the role of bridesmaid for my fabulous Aunt’s wedding in Italy!
Not to mention, my taxidermy work has been putting me through the paces. But in between projects, I always find time to finish my beloved wildlife paintings here and there.
Which brings me to my latest wildlife painting, titled ‘Two Little Egrets’, Gouache on 12 x 8″ Cold Pressed Paper.
I was feeling very inspired by a trip to north Norfolk in February, the bird watching capital of the UK in my eyes!
Although a fairly common site in this part of the world and a bird I see regularly, I was particularly in awe of a pair of Little Egrets I photographed that day.
The sunlight drenched everything in a gorgeous golden light, making the reeds look like warm honey. I thought this would make a great wildlife painting!
I don’t usually paint landscapes either, but I included the backdrop of the view from Blakeney Point, featuring Blakeney Church visible with it’s two towers.
I LOVE Norfolk sunsets over wide open skies. I adore how the colours came out on this one.
I will be getting prints done of this original wildlife painting very soon.
This year I aim to get a lot of wildlife paintings complete, so I can start applying for some art fairs in 2020 – the dream would be to exhibit at Bird Fair!
Now, on to the next one!
