British Wildlife Watercolours

British Wildlife Watercolours.
British wildlife, birds and flowers are carefully painted using watercolours, based on the wildlife and botanical subjects from the garden and local woods.
Wildlife such as small British woodland animals (badgers, foxes, squirrels, mice, bats, deer, otters, wild cats, stoats, weasels - even wild boar, pine martens, beavers and, one day, lynx may return to the wilds of Britain!) and UK garden birds, butterflies and bees, along with ladybirds and dragonflies, add to the joys to be found in the garden, or just beyond, all year round.

Watercolours can be used to capture the beauty in the animal or plant subject using the fluidity of the paints.

Everyone's favourite! A beautiful owl resting amongst the bluebells.

Watercolours can be used in a variety of wildlife paintings for different effects based on creative preferences. For the traditional, realistic bird and wild animal paintings, dry applications of paint are built up slowly to create depth and form.
Looser watercolour illustrations are built up with light washes, sometimes with ink lines applied before or after the washes.
