Description

Watercolour Bird Painting Original – Great Crested Grebe
The Great Crested Grebe is a really graceful bird, it is now a fairly common sight on lakes and reservoirs throughout the UK.  They can be seen all year round with the impressive plume and the orange neck ruff developing during the breeding season.  At this time you may be fortunate and spot a pair involved in an elaborate courtship dance.  The birds will rise vertically out of the water, shaking their heads – a real treat to see.

Painting Dimensions
The size of the paper is approx. 207mm x 297mm (8.1″ x 11.7″)
The size of the painting is approx. 120mm x 187mm  (4.7″ x 7.4″)

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.
