White Breasted Nuthatch, watercolour on panel, 12 x 12"

"I don't paint birds often, but I was asked to teach a watercolour class at one of my commercial galleries, with a songbird as the subject. I haven't taken any close-up bird photos, so I turned to my friend who is a birdwatcher and photographer. When I saw his photo of a sweet little White Breasted Nuthatch perched on a broken branch, with a soft-focus autumn backdrop, I knew this would make a great painting subject for my class. I was more than pleased with my painting."

White Breasted Nuthatch is an original watercolour painting, mounted on an archival panel with a UV-resistant and moisture-resistant coating, which protects the painting and allows it to be displayed without glass.
