A very fine watercolour of Snipe by the British artist David Daly dated 1987

Mounted in a frame which measures approx 52.5 x 44cm

Daly is known for his depictions of birds in their natural environment, and this fine composition focuses on the Great Snipe, a small stocky wader that inhabits the marshes and wet meadows in north-eastern Europe. Daly is known for his delicate and accurate portrayal of wildlife, which he paints en-plein-air. He says of his subject matter, “sketching something that may disappear at any moment is an exciting challenge and all the elements of working directly from life help to create a more convincing image”. This delicate image has been completed in washes of watercolour with areas of precise detail and accuracy. Wonderfully displayed in a washline mount with a wooden frame and gilt detail. Artist Biography: David Daly is a British wildlife artist, whose works and illustrations have been published in several wildlife and bird watching books. Including Bill Oddie’s Birds of Britain & Ireland. Daly was elected as a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists in London (SWLA) in 1990.
