I'm really pleased with how my Nuthatch and Fir artwork turned out because the sight of this little bird brings back lovely memories...

Nuthatch and Fir

The inspiration for the design was a nuthatch I saw on holiday in Scotland, feeding at a forest bird-hide.

Nuthatches are immediately recogniseable as they're the little birds that can run both up and down tree trunks. Clever stuff!

Such beautiful colours, too, so a bird I've definitely been planning on immortalising in artwork!
