I hadn’t planned for the next in my 'Bird on a Perch' series

to take quite as long after the first one as it has done, (six years)

but life does that sometimes. Part of the reason was that it

took some time to find the right one to do next, until I came across

this hoopoe.

These pastel paintings will feature many different kinds of birds,

from small garden varieties to much bigger birds, such as this hoopoe.

The series will include paintings of birds on tree stumps,

washing lines, flowers, branches and many other perches.

This painting of a hoopoe is gutter mounted

to fit a frame size 9.5 x 11.5 in (24 x 30 cm). The painting has

not been treated with fixative.

All my paintings and prints will be mounted, wrapped in cellophane and protected with cardboard to preserve them. I aim to dispatch your purchase within 2 days (excluding holidays), but as I only keep a limited stock of each print, this may take longer if I need to get another done for your order. I will inform you if this is the case.
