Original Pen and Ink drawing with watercolour of a Nuthatch, drawn and painted in April 2016, using watercolour paper, Indian ink, dip pen and Schminke Artists' quality watercolours. There is a liveliness to the drawing created through the line variations and splatters produced by my traditional dip pen.
Painted because I am motivated by a love of drawing birds and as a personal challenge to paint a bird a day. Over time these birds will all be for sale through Artfinder and progress can be followed here, or through my Twitter and Instagram feed.
