CHEEKY CHAPPY - SOLD

This pastel painting of a robin shows the cheeky nature of this delightful bird as it watches what is going on. My wife took the original photograph and I gave it a 3D effect, highlighting the contrast between the bright colours of the robin and the stark grey/brown of the branches. The dappling of the sunlight adds an extra dimension.
