Presented in a beautiful deluxe black frame, this original blackbird painting will look stunning in any home.  This cheeky and friendly little garden bird is a familiar sight on our fences, patios and bird tables across the UK and Ireland.

As a rare monochrome painting, this original piece by Kathryn is perfect for anyone who loves garden birds and something a little different.  Resisting the urge to add layers of colour, Kathryn has made Blackberry in one single layer of black inky gel.  The result it truly striking and is evocative of the blackbird’s lovely song.

What makes an original Blackbird painting by Kathryn unique?

Kathryn uses a unique pouring technique to create her paintings, which is a contact-free approach to making her artwork.  Black ink is mixed with gel to create a new material which offers a new and unusual finish.  The mix is poured from mid-air from an open neck bottle – much like pouring honey onto toast or olive oil onto bread.  The finish is a textured, glossy image set against a smooth white board.

With no sketch underneath the painting, this freeform technique allows Kathryn to create truly original, organic pieces that are full of life and energy.  The result is captivating and often evocative of how we feel about the subject in our minds.  It is this ‘feeling’ that Kathryn strives to achieve through her work that gives it such resonance with collectors far and wide.

This painting has been created on acid-free primed board and finished with two coats of varnish so there is no need for glass.
