Garden Bird Watercolour Painting – an original study of a female Blackbird
The female Blackbird is rather confusingly brown, some even have spots and streaks on their chest!  This one is a fairly dark bird – they do vary greatly in colouration.  The female is responsible for building the nest and will usually do so low down in suitable cover.  It is a substantial piece of engineering and will sometimes be used for more than one brood.  We’ve found nests which are two or three years old and they are still pretty much intact!

Packaging & Materials
I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.

The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing.  Likewise I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me.  I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.

A bit about me!

I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail.  I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.

Do you want to learn how to create your own garden bird watercolour painting?  Take a look at becoming a member of my online school.  I feel that I have found my niche and I absolutely love teaching others.  Firstly, I find it extremely rewarding to be able to see the progress my students make.  Secondly I enjoy being able to interact directly with fellow wildlife artists.  Thirdly and most importantly I am able to share my love of the watercolour medium.  So take a look on YouTube or become a member and you may see this painting being created or learn how to paint your own version.
