Day 26 - Avocet

The avocet is the emblem of the RSPB, a distinctively patterned black and white wader with that wonderful upcurved beak!  Wonderful birds to paint - for another avocet I did a few weeks back click here.

Tomorrow Gary and I are off on a Falconry Day in Mid Wales - it's been cancelled 4 times before due to weather but fingers crossed it will go ahead tomorrow - really looking forward to it and am sure to find some inspiration for paintings!  Hopefully I'll have time to do a quick sketch for the challenge when we get home tomorrow evening!


  1. Such a lovely painting of this little bird. Hope you enjoy your day.

  2. This is a wonderful bird to see and you have captured it very well in this painting. Only 4 more to go.


I love hearing from you, thank you so much for leaving a comment - I will always try to leave a reply and pop over to visit your blog if you have one - although sometimes I may be slower than others, have a wonderful day xx
