A coloured pencil painting of an Eider duck (thanks to Paula Moss for a wonderful photograph to work from). Done using Derwent Coloursoft pencils on smooth HP watercolour paper.

I’m an artist who loves animals as you’ll no doubt see from my subject matter but also, living in Shetland, am inspired by my beautiful, wild land and seascapes. I take commissions for portraits from photographs, run an art club, and also enjoy doing illustrations for children’s books.

    Nice work, great flowy feeling of the water.

    Thanks for that Cindy. If I was going to do it again, I’m not sure I’d have chosen such a vivid blue but I have to say the water can be that colour around here….
