I love the quirkiness of pigeons, now I know they are frowned upon by many but I think they are beautiful birds full of character and determination, and I can't help but love the underdog! I have a bird table in my tiny garden and all that seems to visit is pigeons but they are very entertaining and can be quite cunning and protective a bit like the budgies I used to have......
Sorry back to the painting, it's been rendered in water based paint including emulsion and water based oil and acrylic and has been sealed with a matt glaze. It is painted on canvas and to make the birds stand out I have put them on a light washy pink background, the painting measures- H22.5" x W10" x D 0.5".
