A Fleeting Visitor

‘A Fleeting Visitor’ acrylic on paper, 127 x 178 mm, 2020. Available.

A small study of a New Zealand fantail (piwakawaka) flitting around in the forest (a.k.a. “the bush”). One day I hope to take a good photo of one of these fast little flyers. Every single picture I have ever taken of a fantail is a blur. The shot below is my best to date. Happily, there was just enough detail to be able to use it as a reference for the painting.
