5 Garden Bird Project


Really beautifully painted Paul. I love them all.

Tree-mendous work, Paul. I really like that we can see your paintbox because it shows from whence the birds came. You couldn't have picked five better birds, in my opinion, and choosing a favourite is a tough ask, BUT, I absolutely loved seeing the goldfinches in the hedgerows this year, so the finch gets my vote. I honestly don't think I've ever seen a goldcrest. Superb work! Bri

Superb composition and beautifully painted.

Wonderfully painted Paul. I think my favourite would have to be the robin, but they are all lovely.

Thank you Carole, Bri (yes definitely Goldfinches), Stephen and Tessa (Robins are such lovely birds to paint), for all your kind words. Paul 🎨🐦

Wow, these are just amazing.

Beautiful, Paul. We get all these birds visiting our garden, although the goldcrest and wren are more elusive.

Wonderful, lively and stunningly painted composition-of the birds(and tree) and then the photograph as a whole!

Glorious painting of these gorgeous birds, the goldfinch is my favourite, or "nickle' as it's often referred to in my neck of the woods.

Hi Heather, Jenny (yes Goldcrests are usually around fur trees, so only occasionally visit our garden), thank you Karl for your kind words and Russell I've never heard them called 'nickle' before, a lovely name.

Really lovely Paul I so enjoy painting birds myself !

Stunning work Paul.

Really good!!

Thank you very much Linda, Fiona and Maureen for your kind comments. 🎨🐦

Superb...so miss birdsong here on Gozo, lovely work!

Love these Paul, makes me want to get my watercolours out again.

Thank you Thalia and Bryan for your lovely comments. Paul :-)
