|Spotted Redshank and Twite at Dunwich shore pools|
Thursday, 24 January 2013
It's taken a while to finish this one, but here is an absolutely zinging cold and bright day at Walberswick (unique winter residence of Spotted Redshank and Twite) last November.
The canvas is about 20" high, so getting in some recognisable Twite that look OK but don't stick out from the background like little rub-on transfers was a challenge: here's where I ended up, with each bird rendered across no more than about 15 stitches of canvas.

This story had a happy ending, with the bedraggled partridge coming to its senses and floundering to shore after 25 minutes.
