Presented in a beautiful deluxe black frame, this Original Wren Painting will look stunning in any home.  This little bird may be tiny, but it more than makes up for it with its song, which is the loudest of any bird in the UK and Ireland!

With touches of genuine gold and silver leaf, this original painting by Kathryn is perfect for anyone who loves birds or the outdoors in general.

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 bird.

What makes an Original Wren 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 primed board and finished with two coats of varnish so there is no need for glass.
