‘Birds Nest with Hawthorne’ 2

'Birds Nest with Hawthorne' 2 Oil on canvas , an oil painting of a birds nest with Chaffinch eggs on a natural ground and a mossy bank with a spray of Hawthorne blossom

Oil on canvas 8 x 10 in 20.32 x 25.4 cm

These birds nests are painted very much in the Victorian tradition of still life painting. I have a small collection of old nests and bring in earth and ground litter and different blossom when in season,along with moss etc and stage set them in the studio and work from life. You can’t beat working from life to get at the essence of things!
