Turtle doves have seen catastrophic population declines in the last twenty years or so, mainly due to food shortages, habitat loss and hunting during their migration. They are now vulnerable to extinction in the UK. This beautiful bird migrates to West Africa for the winter, making it Europe’s only long distance migratory dove.
The detail on these birds is just stunning. If you click on the images in the gallery above, you can see the drawing in more detail … and don’t worry, the watermark isn’t present on the drawing itself.
When buying this one of a kind artwork, you have a choice of finishes:
- without any mount or frame (drawing size is approx. 10×7 inches); or,
- mounted, framed (14×11 inches) and ready to hang on the wall. The black frame is handmade in the UK and uses wood from sustainable UK sources. For safety reasons during transportation, the frame is supplied with clear perspex rather than glass (visually, perspex provides an identical finish to glass); perspex also makes the frame light-weight for hanging purposes. Mount board is a charcoal-black colour to complement the artwork.
As with all my originals, the artwork complies with the highest archival standards, meaning it is created to last.
