This original watercolour painting features Phoebe who is a female leaden flycatcher. They are the most acrobatic of birds, swooping in and and catching their preferred insects out of the air. She is part of a pair which visit us here near Mudgee so it seemed appropriate that I feature her on one of my favourite teacups in my collection.
She loves a good strong cup of lapsang souchong to get the taste of fly out of her beak…
This petite 21cm squared painting is painting in professional quality watercolours on khaki handmade cotton rag paper.
