Painting of a Great Spotted WoodpeckerThis hot-off-the-easel painting depicts a (partly hidden) Great Spotted Woodpecker having a go at a tree trunk. It was painted from a photograph taken by my wife Judith during a visit to Burton Mere Wetlands in May this year. Completed this afternoon in a couple of hours either side of an all-important tea break, it was painted in a combination of Winsor & Newton and Pip Seymour acrylics on mount board, much of the pre-prepared colour of which I’ve left untouched. It measures around 10” x 8” or thereabouts.
