Kingfisher oil on board an older oil painting of mine completed 15 years ago and kept in my loft all that time.recently ive had it framed and also reproduced it as a limited edition print available from my website www.clivemeredithart.weebly.com
I can't believe this is all traditional! The fine details, especially in the feathers!, are so convincing. I really like how you chose to use a neutral gray for the background. It's not distracting and allows the viewer to focus on the bird.
thankyou very much for the kind words,this painting was the last oil i completed before a 15 year break whilst i concentrated on graphite works,having now returned to oils i'm pleased that this one still 'cuts the mustard'
