Bird Feeder : Peanuts for the Great Tit

Leave a comment

I wonder often how to anchor my art ideas down.  There is so much to choose from when it comes to making a picture .But at the start of this year my paint sketches have the anchor that is my own experience in a given day.

I set up a lovely looking bird feeding stand in the summer, only to solemnly and regularly dump the rejected rotting food in the bin for a fresh supply in the hope that at some point the local bird community might regard my garden as an OK place to feast on sunflower heart seeds, niger seeds, suet balls, and peanuts,  it has all been there with no takers.

Finally as the weather cooled to winter some birds have found the bird food acceptable. Although it all still seems a bit sporadic.

The Great Tit has been to the feeder in the tree, so here is a quick painting sketch of a Great Tit to complement my success.
