Artist's Description

Pencil sketch and watercolour on Visual 140gsm
In my garden, Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa

My favourite subject to paint – birds. Their expressions say more than a thousand words, and body posture warns of the next move – relaxing, taking flight, being vigilant or not feeling so well. Whenever I see a bird sitting puffed up (a sure sign of illness), I’m immediately relieved if it’s feathers return to normal upon my approach.

This little Laughing Dove (Spilopelia senegalensis), which had obviously just fledged and was sitting on a low branch of one of my trees waiting for the parents to bring it a snack, wasn’t at all perturbed by my presence and I managed to get a good sketch before I noticed the parents patiently waiting for me to leave!
