The Birds of Pipa 2

Oil, acrylic, 24ct Manetti Superior Gold Leaf on birchwood - framed in a white-grained wood. 



The artwork was shown at my solo show IN FLIGHT, at The Hyde Gallery, Chiswick London and The Other Art Fair in London, March 2024 - presented by Saatchi Art. 


The Birds of Pipa 2 is the second painting in the series from The Brazil collection. 


Named after Pria de Pipa, one of the most stunning places that I traveled to,  which is located next to the city of Natal. Again the painting showcases a single hummingbird that injects a burst of color, set against a backdrop of acrylic wash on birchwood. The bird is painted inflight & has individual character. I painted the second panel with the idea that the panels could be paired or work as single pieces of art. With vibrant colourful botanical work, in the same colourway as The Birds of Pipa 1. 


Showing the delicate grains in the birchwood in contrast with the vibrant oils of which the hummingbird is painted. 


The birchwood panel is set on a 24ct gold-leafed wood panel. Creating not only a painting but a sculptured piece of art.
