Great Spotted Woodpecker
Description:

A painting I have done from a photo I took a month or so ago hopefully I will improve the more I do,not sure if the eye colour is right as my photo I think did not give the true colour as it showed a umber reddish colour.

Superb

a really vivid, animated watercolour. I learned to paint birds from Robin Reckitt in Winchcombe, he did Birds of Cyprus and was a friend of Peter Scott. I remember we mixed a glossing agent into the black to give the eye an extra dark sparkle. Never quite this good, I might dig out an old one or start painting again.
Nice one, very inspiring!

Love this -

I have no artistic skill whatsoever, and really admire people who can produce work of this quality. The bird looks alive!

Good enough - have you looked at Charles Tunnicliffe's "Sketchbook of Birds". He used to note the location and the date of composition. Keep it up, Sheila. Regards
