Secretary Bird

Watercolour

Unframed/unmounted. Signed

Secretary Birds are categorised as vulnerable (VU). They are large birds with bird of prey type bodies combined with long, powerful crane-like legs. The artwork attempts to portray their allure and unmistakable beauty with their orange-red faces, black, quill-like crest feathers and long, arresting eyelashes.

Stephen strives to create vibrant, contemporary watercolour paintings aiming to celebrate the beauty and uniqueness of birds, to capture their individual character and simply to share his love of birds. He takes a playfully experimental approach, juxtaposing detailed facial features with loose, free-flowing techniques for the body.
