This is a Watercolour and the white of the birds is not paint but the white of the paper, which give a greater impact. Eleanor is a keen bird watcher and this is a painting she did recently after watching the swallows lining up to leave at the end of the summer.
27" x 32" to frame edge.
Eleanor was inspired by the wonderful diversity of the wildflowers that grew in Devon and started painting these together with some of the butterflies and insects she observed with them. Her paintings were soon produced as greetings cards by several well-known card companies and Eleanor also exhibited her original watercolours at local Art Society exhibitions, craft fairs etc.
