Artist's description:

KINGFISHER (Alcedo atthis) Original Signed Oil Painting

This is an original signed oil paintings which I completed in 2016. It is typical of my style of work with softening and blurring (vignette) the image towards the edges of the painting. This enables the eyes of the viewer to be initially drawn to the centre of the picture and focus on the main subject matter. Oils are an ideal medium for this technique, because painting "wet on wet" allows the artist to merge the colours and shading.

The Kingfisher doesn't really require any introduction because anyone walking along a riverbank and seeing one of these stunning birds for the first time can be a joy and an unforgettable experience. I will always remember the description in the Reader's Digest Book of British Birds, "A flash of sapphire is all that is needed to identify the Kingfisher as it streaks downstream or belly-flops to snatch a minnow". I often go birdwatching and remember my first sighting as a teenager, and even though I've seen many Kingfishers over the years in various locations, it's still a bird which fails to disappoint.

The painting is ready to hang and the framed overall size is: 12"(W) x 14"(H), and the actual image size: 9.5"(W) x 11.5"(H).
