This Gouache painting was inspired by my recent journey to New Zealand, where I've encountered so many beautiful and incredibly brightly coloured birds, among which was the Silvereye. A limited edition of prints of the Silvereye is available for purchase. The original has been sold.

The process all started with sketching out the Silvereye . Then, the sketch was transferred onto high quality paper, using a light pad. Once the sketch was finished, the silvereye was painted, using photographs as colour references.
Since gouache paint can easily be reactivated, the silvereye was painted in a few sessions. The final piece was scanned and limited edition art prints were made. One of these prints is shown on the right.
