Making a splash - diving kingfisher LIVE PREVIEW available
I have sold a number of kingfishers over the past few years and I love this one, showing the diving position. This painting was created using a photograph by Paul Elliott as reference and I changed the background to give the vibrant colours more contrast.
I used soft pastel for the background, and pastel pencils for the feathers and details. The paper I use is Artspectrum Colourfix. The sharpened pencils create the detail and the background is blended using polystyrene sticks to give the three dimensional effect to the completed painting.
This painting is 10 inch by 14 inch - in it's white frame it is 21 inch by 17 inch which is the perfect size for any wall.
