Re: Barn Swallow

I love swallows and they are always swooping into barns near to where I live. Beautiful watercolour Kay.

Re: Barn Swallow

This is lovely Kay. I love that deep blue on the wing. I've been enjoying watching the swallows this year, they'll be leaving here soon and heading off south again.

What a pretty little fella, I always admire people who can handle watercolour and on a small scale too

Re: Barn Swallow

Beautiful work, Kay! We have an abundance of these lovely birds around here, and as a result of them and the local bats, have very few troublesome insects bothering us.

Re: Barn Swallow

Love these birds! Beautifully done! We have them swooping in and out of our barn and they have built several nests. So fun to watch them take care of the kids!
