Barn Owl - This Barn Owl appears perched on an old fence post looking out across a field waiting to pinpoint its next meal. Barn Owls are an iconic and magical owl that looks distinct and spectacular in its silent flight and is a true beauty of the UK countryside.

Homemade watercolours & illustrated with pen.

House Sparrow - This is a bird that we are all familiar with, often seeing it dart in and out of hedgerows, or on the bird feeder. This is a species that has been in decline recently due to the changes in human habits, who it relies on, it is therefore important that we notice and appreciate it and try to look after it.

Homemade watercolours & illustrated with pen.

Puffin - created with homemade watercolours and pen, this image shows a proud puffin stood on a rock. The Puffin is an incredible, special bird and it really is a joy to draw with its perfect proportions and that fantastic beak. These birds are fantastic to see and here in Cumbria we are still lucky enough to have a few breeding pairs on the coast, although due to their small numbers they can be tricky to spot. 

Blue Tit -  this was created using homemade watercolours and pen, perched upon its branch with the kind of excitement that a blue tit brings to the world of birds. This original was drawn with a particular Blue Tit in mind who often visits my window while I draw, its movement is incredible and always punctuated with a spike of its crest.

Goosander - This is a female Goosander which has very unusual and striking colourations, this original was made using handmade watercolours and pen. This shows the Goosander in the water with its distinctive sleek and low profile which move elegantly through the water and surprisingly fast.

Bullfinch - This is an original pen and homemade watercolour, of a handsome male Bullfinch, perched on a small stick. This original was created in December 2021 and has been framed in a off black rustic frame. Bullfinches are the jewels of our native birds with their unusual colour and plump bodies.

The image area is 21-20cm and when framed it measures 38-37cm.

Great-Spotted Woodpecker - An original homemade watercolour and pen drawing of a Great-Spotted Woodpecker, which is clutching to its tree. This original was created in April 2021 and is framed in a rustic off black frame. The woodpecker is always a great bird to spot, but more often you just hear them hard at work.

The image area is 17-26cm and the overall framed image is 34-44cm.

Goldcrest - An original pen drawing with homemade watercolours, of a Goldcrest peeking off a branch. The Goldcrest is thought of as the king of birds hence its scientific name Regulus regulus. This drawing was created in June 2021, framed in a off black rustic frame.

The image area is 20-17cm and the overall framed image is 37-32cm.

All signed, mounted & framed in a beautiful dark brown natural wood frame.
