Great Spotted Woodpecker

Great Spotted Woodpecker

Very good. Is it in watercolour?

Yes, Tony. Thanks for the encouragement.

He's a beauty Fiona and you have painted him so well!

He’s gorgeous Fiona, I like how you have done the grain on the tree as well.....very effective.

I saw one in our garden only today. No sparrows which used to be so common here, but a woodpecker.. He's a beauty Fiona. Good tree as well!

What a beautiful bird, Fiona! The red is so striking, and I agree that the tree is very well-painted too...

Beautifully done and observed.

Thank you all for your encouraging comments.

Hang on Studio Wall

We sometimes see this lovely bird on our feeder so I thought I'd try to paint one, with a tree rather than a feeder.

About the Artist
Fiona Rossington

After a career teaching Science, I am now retired and have time to enjoy a local Art class. I find pastel suits my style but I also enjoy trying to use water colours to good effect. I love painting flowers but also enjoy buildings, which so far I have painted from photos I have taken.
