Curlew Sandpiper in Northern Holland

Transparent Watercolor on Crescent Mat Board
Image Size: 5" x 5".
Non-Professional Photograph
Male in Breeding Plumage.
A vagrant to North America, it's migration route is
from the Arctic to Northern Africa, where they
are a common shore bird.

This was a practice painting for a live demo
of a Short-Billed Dowitcher I will be painting
on July 30th at the Ned Smith Nature & Art Festival
in Millersburg, PA.

  1. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is
    also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee,

    The image can be seen at who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
