This lapwing painting illustrates a bird also known as the green plover or peewit, it is seen in flocks over a large range of habitats both in summer and winter. Although it initially appears black and white, the upper parts are glossed with green and bronze, with white underparts and orange undertail feathers, which can best be seen when it tips its head to feed as it runs and walks.
Courtship and territorial displays involve acrobatic swoops and dives whilst calling – a distinctive plaintive “pee-wit”.
This is an original watercolour painting on Fabriano artistico paper. It is window mounted on ivory, size 30 x 40 cms when mounted.
