Blue Tit on Ivy Leaves

Title: Blue Tit on Ivy Leaves
Description: An adorable little blue tit perched on trailing ivy leaves. My thanks to Albert Horsborough for kind permission to use his wonderful reference photo. The blue tit (cyanistes caeruleus) is a much-loved garden and woodland bird, widespread in the UK and much of Europe, entertaining us with its agility at our back yard bird feeders. Like the chickadee, it is part of the paridae family. Derwent Lightfast and Caran d'Ache Luminance pencils on Clairefontaine Pastelmat board with Pan Pastel background. All materials used are acid free and meet the highest standards of lightfastness.

Artist Biography:

I am a UK-based artist whose art hangs in homes from the west coast to the east coast of the USA and from the north to the south of the UK. I am so excited to know that my paintings and drawings are bringing pleasure to others after I have enjoyed creating them!

Childhood tales of my grandfather's adventures as a flight mechanic for pioneering aviator Sir Alan Cobham, and my father's involvement with the Fairey Delta project, aircraft naturally became a subject I just had to paint, and led me to join the Guild of Aviation Artists.

Other favourite subjects are wildlife, scenes from the age of sail, and western scenes inspired by holidays spent on ranches in Arizona, Wyoming and Texas and touring the western states of the USA.

My work has been on display at galleries in Lichfield and Walsall.
