Pheasants are great fun and I often think they have quite a haughty look to them. They're always about on my drive to my Northumberland studio and their colours are fantastic.
Quill is the original painting and was created using dry brushed ink and layers of watercolour to build up rich colours and textures within the piece. I like to work as quickly as I can to produce a painting which reflects the life of the subject matter. With Quill it was important to capture that richness of colour and enough detail to best show his beautiful feathers.
The painting comes mounted in a black core mount measuring 16 by 20 inches and comes posted flat within a cello bag between sheets of thick cardboard and wrapped in brown paper. Each original comes signed on the front and contains a certificate of authenticity.
