Original watercolour painting issued 2003

Image size 8" high by 10" wide (200 mm by 250 mm)
(Low resolution image illustrated)

This is one of a small series of watercolour paintings that I did based on a trip to Savary Island in 2003. The light and colour there is wonderful, and the luminous glows of a watercolour wash seemed like the best way to try and capture some scenes. This little study shows a flock (group, clutch, herd?) of Black Turnstones, working their way along the shoreline. They are so named because of their habit of turning over stones with their long beaks, to see what edible sea creatures might be hiding underneath. Here they have retreated to a rock just offshore, after I came a bit too close to them.

The painting is archivally matted in Crescent 1607 4-ply matte, in an OPUS metal exhibition frame. The image is painted with professional watercolours on Canson Montval 300gsm cold-press acid-free watercolour paper, made in France. There is also some pen & ink work in this piece.
