Meet Claude, a gorgeous pheasant who regularly comes to the garden to help himself to the bird food. But who could object when he’s just so handsome with all those iridescent feathers? This is a commissioned painting, the idea was to capture him in action tackling the feeder.
He is a 16×12 acrylic painting on stretches canvas. The photo doesn’t show it but there are iridescent colours in his feathers in blues, greens and purples, gold and coppers.
