Fluffed into her own plumage is a gorgeous wee kotare / kingfisher. It is said that if you see one, then rain is not far away. Rather appropriate for the weather we have just had.

She has been carefully painted using traditional watercolour techniques, subtle washes of cream, ochre, sienna and various hues of Blues and greens have been layered up to create a richness and depth to the colours within the kotare's feathers. Then it has been professionally printed using archival inks on Hahnemuhle William Turner 310gms cotton rag paper. This particular paper is just gorgeous, it has the appearance of water-colour paper and has been specifically created for longevity when used with pigmented inks.

Your treasure will be shipped to you carefully encased in cellophane (you can put this in your compost) and posted within a sturdy reinforced envelope to prevent it from being damaged in the post.
