Some months ago I received a request by the ringer of Lesser Black-backed Gull Yellow H.501 if I could provide him with a photo so that it could be turned into a painting for his personal enjoyment.
I was very flattered by this request and of course sent him the photo he requested.
A few months forward and I was sent the result: very impressive!
The painting was created by German artist Diana Höhlig.
Here is the original photo:
And some photos of the work in progress:
All photos of the paintings were posted with kind permission of the artist.
