IDEAS AND SKETCHES

Kingfisher ('Blue Dive')

This is a new idea I'm working on inspired by a Kingfisher I spotted working its way down the river side at the back of Ludlow castle. The hunting technique of these enegmatic birds is a sight to behold. The speed of the dive and the cracking sound as the water is broken by these fantastic creatures is quite amazing. Keep checking back to see how the painting develops.

I've refined the sketch to include the splash and add a bit more detail to the bird. Check back to see how the painting develops.
