I bet you didn't know that blackbirds do Yoga too. Tree pose is a yoga pose where one foot is lifted off the ground and you balance on your other foot. The birds in my garden are very good at it.
This blackbird visits my garden regularly. All birds are very agile with great balance so it's no surprise to capture them in such poses. A blackbird often has it's head tilted to one side, listening, so it's common to see one side of them with one eye sharply taking everything in. The yellow / orange beaks are so recognisable and a dream for artists like myself who enjoy monotone with a splash of colour.
He has been drawn in charcoal with pastel colour on grey pastel paper. It is framed in a basic black plain frame with a black mount. He can be re-framed at any time. The size is 16 x 12" and is ready to hang.
