Our most colourful bird in the Uk the Kingfisher, is a joy to behold.
The walks next to the river are so much more enjoyable if you are lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the bird as it flashes over the surface in a streak
of azure blue. It’s superbly designed beak makes it worthy of it’s name and Kingfisher it certainly is, small fish like the minnow are it’s favourite dish.
As a wildlife artist you have got to re create this bird to enjoy the pure pleasure of selecting the beautiful blues, oranges and browns of this magical looking species. When the final touch is added to the piece and it suddenly comes alive ready to fly of it’s perch, you really appreciate how grateful we should be to have this bird resident in the UK.
I hope you enjoy my photo diary of making the King Fisher.
Til next time Catherine x
