I’ve been working on a few pieces recently inspired by chaffinches which has given me time to think about these beautiful birds. It is actually quite hard to find artists who have depicted chaffinches in their work but by coincidence three of my favourite artists have, and here they are for you to enjoy:
Beautiful drawing of a Tenerife Chaffinch by the wonderful twentieth century birder and artist, Eric Ennion.
Chaffinches by Mary Fedden (thank you one pinkgoose.blogspot)
Fantastic camouflaged chaffinch in Early Blossom by Matt Underwood, Japanese Woodblock print
And some of my recent attempts:
Chaffinch in Ivy study – Watercolour and Gouache
Island Chaffinches Screen print (Slightly Cropped)
Chaffinch Tree painting (Gouache on paper) Still in progress but hopefully nearly there…
The three chaffinch works I’ve posted here are quite different in feel but hopefully all of them capture something of the charm of these birds.
