Colin has been working on this painting of black grouse over the last couple of weeks – it was on his easel at the Scottish Game Fair, and it’s now finished.

There’s a lovely iridescence in the male’s plumage, and the two greyhens are beautiful in their intricate camouflage.  The grass was probably the biggest headache – weaving it around to make it look real!
