Kingfisher


Another project came to my mind: birds from Europe and their scientific names from A to Z.
I started with "Alcedo atthis", the kingfisher.
It will be available as a print in my new ETSY shop.
Collage, ink and watercolour on clear blue Canson "Mi-Teintes".

Congratulations on your ETSY shop! And the lovely new blog (which I have visited and admired your beautiful photos). And I do love your recent work here; the use of writing as a background for your autumn leaves is just amazing. Really, really lovely!

Another project?? Leaves and now birds - wonderful natural subjects. Look forward to the next 25 alphabet birds????? mind you what bird begins with such letters as q, x, z - wonder if you'll find any?? Happy hunting and painting.

Thank you all so very much for your nice ideas and thoughts!

@Joan: I started bird "B", but I already realized that I w i l l definitely have difficulties to find birds with their scientific names starting with "Q", "X" and "Z"...you're so right!

Claudia, traveling through your blog I came across this and I do the same thing (A-Z) when making small art journals. A for Art, B-Birds, N for Nature, etc. and BTW the book obsessio., Yes, Northlight was a big source before Amazon.
