Birds in Watercolour… Pied Oyster Catcher

Some of my earliest drawings and paintings are of birds. It is a subject to which I often return both with painting and drawing and with photography. This, pied oyster catcher, is my most recent bird painting. My reference was a photo I took at the end of 2011 while on a trip to Northern NSW, returning via the coast. I took every opportunity to photograph my beloved feathered friends.pied oyster catcher
