A small realistic oil painting on wood of a dipper, a rare bird in the Netherlands.
Dipper, oil on panel, 7,48” x 11,02”, 2018.

In spring the sudden appearance of the rare dipper alongside the banks of the river Waal in Nijmegen, led to a commission for a painting of this wonderfull bird. And because I’m not used making animal portraits, I just put my little friend between my human portraits.
