“One of the most visible of our birds of prey, second only to the Buzzard and Red Kite, although, only in some areas. I’ve always been drawn to the kestrel, or kezzy, and seeing them in the wild is always a highlight. This female was seen on a walk in the New Forest and the way she was perched and held her body was so picturesque, it immediately became a contender for a piece of artwork. It has now become part of a series of small bird pieces I’m in the process of completing, so far, only the sparrow has been completed, but more are on the way.
It was done predominantly in Bic biro, but I’ve also added white oil paint over the top of some areas. This is done to enhance the work, add to the sense of depth and increase the focus on the main subject matter.”
The frames for my smallest works are bought in especially, in order to keep costs as competitive as possible. They are made from Abachi wood, a lightweight hardwood that is perfect for high quality framing.
At present, I can only ship to the UK via the website. I can ship to other destinations, but I’ll need you to get in touch, using the contact me form, for a quote if buying from outside the UK.
All the art I sell is packaged extremely carefully, to keep your painting safe for it’s journey, no matter how far. I have years of experience packaging original artworks for transport to all parts of the world, so you can have faith your unique piece of art will arrive safe and sound. This can take some time, especially with original paintings, however, I aim to ship all art within 2 working days.
