European Robin

How to buy (General Information)
The European Robin is a bird I will forever associate with my time in the UK. Their tiny, graceful form, sprightly behavior, and beautiful, liquid song are all emblematic of the natural beauty of the English Countryside. On a recent trip to the UK, I seemed to encounter singing robins around every bend. All of them seemed quite content to pose for photographs, something I have always taken as nature’s way of saying, “Hey, Andrew, this is something you need to draw or paint. Now get to it!” This particular bird, observed at Sculpture by the Lakes in Dorset, serenaded me for a long while, and I knew he would be featured in an artwork. I chose to describe only his bright, luminous orange head and chest in color, letting the rest of the scene fade into the black, white, and grey, of winter. The use of color here is very calculated, appropriately descriptive off the Robin’s clarion call portending the coming of Spring.
