Canada Geese hatched this year are growing up now and are in their adult plumage - although not looking anywhere near as smart and clean-cut as their elders. At this stage of their life, they seem a little unsure of themselves but are tamer than their older relatives so make excellent models as I can usually approach them quite closely so long as I sit quietly and don't move about too much. This watercolor study is about 5" x 8".
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
