New artwork completed for my next exhibition in June 2019

Nuthatch pastel artwork bird art Ivan Jones artist

As I continue to actively promote this website and my artwork that is for sale here, I also am working on artworks for my next art exhibition. This exhibition is called "Out of the Hills" and runs between the 1st and 16th of June at Aardvark Books in Brampton Bryan, Shropshire.

Having sold my first nuthatch in 2017 I thought another nuthatch may be a popular choice for my next pastel artwork. I sourced a reference photograph by Erik de Rijk from Dreamstime.com

This is me at work on the nuthatch using a pastel pencil to add texture to the feathers. Such lovely birds that we rarely see here, living as we do with fields all around. They love peanut feeders in wooded gardens...a very special visitor.
