Original Watercolor Osprey Painting, Realistic, Illustration Art
The Osprey is a spectacular fish eating bird of prey with a wingspan of up to 1.7 m.  Sadly numbers are low in the UK with around 200-250 pairs.  The birds arrive back in the UK in late March into April, leaving again in August and September to return to Africa.  However, it is almost a worldwide species, so in other areas of the globe it is fortunately more numerous.  I’ve actually written a blog on this painted, if you are interested in reading a bit more about the process click here.

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.
