A little sketching opportunity inspired by our beautiful African Hoopoes.
Rock Pigeons over the Sunflower Fields of the Freestate.
Rock Pigeons and fields of sunflowers posed some considerable challenges with this commission.
Beautiful and lemon-bright Bokmakieries in our winter garden are a delight to see and sketch !

The recent commission to paint Whitebacked vultures in the Maasai Mara in Kenya, inspired me to make some extra sketches.
The Feathered Fruit-eaters in our Garden
The Fruit-eating birds are delightful distraction on the bird table outside my studio window, and all around our garden.
Feeding The Birds
The daily ritual of feeding our guinea fowl and all the other birds that arrive for the feast, inspired not only these sketches and paintings, but a reflection on how the birds can teach us to have faith in our Heavenly Father.
