A Goldfinch Painting – Sold

I love goldfinches. There are so many here in Central London, you hear them singing from high above and watch them flying in groups from tree to tree. So pretty and such lovely singers too. If there’s a sweet song in the air and small birds perched on the tv aerials. you can bet they’re goldfinches.

This one is perched on a post checking out a feeder. He is painted in watercolour on Saunders Waterford watercolour paper.

Pigeon Argument

I saw these two pigeons in the park while I was feeding the robins. They were having an argument and one pigeon effectively punched the other with his beak! I guess it’s the only way to get your point across forcefully if you’re a pigeon. :-)

I loved the cross expression on his face! I think that’s called getting beak slapped.
