Out of all the subjects that Colin paints, it’s usually the majestic birds like eagles that get the most attention… but he also loves garden birds, and he has just finished this lovely drawing of a wren.

We see wrens quite often in our garden, which has really pleased me as they do suffer in long periods of harsh weather.  I hope that the mild winter we’ve just had will ensure a good supply of insects.

Despite their size, wrens are feisty little creatures with a loud voice and a real attitude.   I love them!

Here is the drawing in progress and finished.   It has now been sold – but more drawings are offered for sale regularly on Colin’s website.
