Kingfisher- mounted watercolour painting

Seeing a flash of blue near the river inspired this atmospheric painting of a Kingfisher. Aren’t they just the most beautiful of birds? This painting will certainly be a talking point, the bright Kingfisher blue sings out from the paper, yet the milky morning sunshine provides a calming balance to the piece.

I have only ever seen a flash of blue, but it was enough to capture my heart and make me want to paint Kingfishers. Aren't they beautiful? Such vivid colours. I love the quietness in this painting, the sense of calm and stillness. I tried to capture the milky morning sunshine and hint at the Kingfisher's surroundings with texture and shade, but not define it, so the spotlight is always on him.
Painted on Rough Waterford paper for added texture and interest.
