Cliff – Original Puffin Painting


This is a beautiful Original Puffin Painting inspired by the quirky personality and distinctive appearance of these very special birds. While they’re found around most of the rockier coastlines of the UK and Ireland, Rathlin Island in County Antrim is famous for its seabird and puffin colonies, with these tuxedoed birds marching happily by sightseers with beaks full of tiny sand eels to feed their chicks!
Cliff is the perfect painting for anyone who embodies that delightful personality of happiness and embraces the unconventional!

Part of our Miniatures Collection, this is a great way to own an original Kathryn Callaghan painting that will fit easily into any space, for less than you might expect.

Presented in a beautiful deluxe black frame, this Original Puffin Painting will look stunning in any home. These birds are known for their friendly, curious nature and unique beaks, and their lovable quirks have been captured beautifully in this one of a kind painting.

With touches of genuine gold and silver leaf, this original painting by Kathryn is perfect for everyone who loves the quiet countryside and all of the creatures who call it home.

The colour has been applied in layers, using Kathryn’s signature ‘honey-like’ inky mixes alongside splashes of inks both opaque and semi-transparent.  The result is one of depth and energy that captures the essence of this lovely little wading bird.

What makes an Original Puffin Painting by Kathryn unique?

Kathryn uses a unique pouring technique to create her paintings, which is a mostly contact-free approach to making her artwork, layer by layer.  Inks are mixed with gels and other mediums to create new materials which offer new and unusual finishes.  These materials are poured from mid-air from open neck bottles, dropped from pipettes, squeezed, blown and splattered across the surface.

With no sketch underneath the painting, these freeform techniques allow Kathryn to create truly original, organic pieces that are full of life and energy.  Her eye for colour enables her to represent each subject using colours you might not expect to see – but nevertheless the result is captivating and is 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 paper board and is presented behind acrylic glass to preserve the textured surface.
