‘Waxwing Winter Feast’ - colourful and contemporary waxwing art by Lotti Brown

I think the waxwing is one of the most unusual and colourful birds that we have as a visitor to Britain… and one that I’ve very rarely seen…

In some years they are very abundant winter visitors to the east of the country, feasting on berries but they seldom seem to appear close to me… but I still live in hope that one day I’ll suddenly happen across a tree or bush festooned in colourful waxwings!

My artwork was inspired by a beautiful winter photo by Dee Carpenter (used under license) of a waxwing enjoying a rowan berry feast, that I’ve used as the basis for my artwork…

Here’s how I created my waxwing artwork from my pen and marker drawings, with a little digital help from Adobe Illustrator.

I love the warm winter colours of the artwork - and all credit to a fantastic photo source - and what an amazing colourful little bird.
