Original bird illustration: “White-Breasted Nuthatch”

Watercolor and Gouache 10″ X 8″, 2012

The Nuthatch’s habit of perching upside-down always makes me smile – it’s a great reminder to keep a fresh perspective, and try to look at the world from a different angle. I kept catching myself grinning at this cute little bird while I was painting him, which made this detailed bird illustration a lot of fun to create!

This listing is for an original unmatted and unframed painting, in watercolor and gouache. Gouache paint is similar to watercolor, but is more opaque, allowing for brighter, richer colors.

Painting measures 10″ X 8″ (24.5 X 20.3 cm) to fit in a standard frame.

It is painted on 140 lb (300 g/m2), acid free, archival quality hot press watercolor paper, using high quality watercolor and gouache paints. The painting is finished with a coat of spray varnish.

This piece is signed with a monogram and year in the lower right-hand corner, and title, date and artist’s name on back.
