Goldcrest’s are a common bird in most areas, but Autumn arrivals can be special. Last October, overnight rain grounded dozens of birds where the previous evening there had been none. Their thin, high-pitched calls were all around me as small flocks fed on stone walls and grassy clumps as they sought out better habitat to re-fuel. I had this idea to paint a feeding bird in a hawthorn all winter before I finally got around to it.
Original copy painted by hand, with watercolor technique on special paper for watercolor.
