Original Robin Painted in Watercolour – Realistic, Fine Art Detail
A small head study of a British Robin, our charismatic, much loved garden bird.  This was a piece that I worked on for a series of instructional videos for Painters Online.  I love painting robins, and whilst I use the same paints each time, they all look different and have their own little character.  The robin is one of our British birds that will sing throughout the winter, at this time both males and females hold territories.  Indeed, they will resolutely defend ‘their patch’ and have been known to fight to the death. 😢 However, come the spring and the male finally allows the female to enter his territory.  She carefully makes a beautiful nest from dried leaves, moss and hair as she sets up home.

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 create an original robin painted in watercolour?  Maybe 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.
