"Bitterns at Minsmere" Painting status: available - please contact me

 I was extremely honoured to have been selected to receive a Bronze Citation for my painting at the recent TWASI Exhibition at Nature In Art
receiving bronze citation award 2018nr Gloucester. "The muted colours and effective use of paint demonstrating an original approach to the subject." 

This acrylic painting on canvas was inspired by a visit to the RSPB Minsmere Reserve.  I have been going there for many years and have never caught even a glimpse of a bittern, but on that visit I saw not one but two!  One was hiding in the reeds then another came flying in.  They do look rather ungainly when in flight.  Painting the reeds and the water reflections were quite a challenge. But together with the frame make a very harmonious painting.
