A redwing (Turdus iliacus) is a kind of thrush. They migrate to the UK in vast numbers every winter to escape the harsh conditions in Scandinavia where they breed. This is one I saw near my home feasting on hawthorn berries. In really cold weather they often come into towns and villages to eat the berries on ornamental bushes in parks and gardens.
Who is the real beast in this picture? This is a painting about power, territory, tigers and people's greed and stupidity. It won't be too long until there are no more tigers living wild and free.
An original painting, acrylic on paper, 30cm x30cm, framed but unglazed. Price includes shipping to UK addresses.
