new holland honeyeater

We have a lot of native bush at our place and this is where the small birds hang out. I love watching them -  they're the underdogs, the nervous scrub dwellers. I photograph and draw them and engrave the drawings onto a thin metal coated board and tint them with watercolour. This technique brings out the fine detail and personality of each bird. Every one of the #smallbirdsofblackheath is a character. 

Metal coated board on black plywood, sealed and protected with beeswax.

 

Ready to hang with a hand made wire loop on the back.
