Parrot In Flight
Watercolour painting of a parrot flying over the sheep field behind my house.
I live in a small town in north west England called Kirkby Stephen. It's surrounded by sheep fields and empty moors and it tends to be grey and wet. It's also home to a small colony of semi-feral parrots that live in a sanctuary just outside of town and can often be seen sitting on chimney stacks or flying over the grazing sheep.
Trying to be artsy whilst practising my watercolours. There's probably a lot of symbology there somewhere. The fade out to the left was intentional, by the way. Can't quite remember what I thought it represented though. Looking towards a brighter future maybe? Sure, we'll go with that.
