Belgravia in Bloom – Sunlit Pigeon



Sunlit Pigeon
Acrylic on Canvas

“Here I am taking inspiration from urban city wildlife. The humble pigeon, nuisance to some and beautiful to others. Pigeons are such a big part of our environment, adorning buildings like living gargoyles. Half the time they go unnoticed when Sat high up on ledges and rooftops. My painting captures a typical pose of a resting pigeon basking in the sun.” – Marie Antoniou
