Curlew Original (Unframed)

“Curlew” is one of the two original watercolour artworks that prolific artist Jim Moir created during the filming of the premiere episode of the TV show “Painting Birds With Jim And Nancy Moir” on Sky Arts. This exquisite piece features a stunning portrayal of a Curlew, a native bird species found in the British countryside, rendered in delicate watercolours on high-quality paper.

As featured on the TV show, Jim used his mastery of watercolour techniques to capture the subtle nuances of the Curlew’s form and plumage, showcasing his artistic skills and deep appreciation for the beauty of nature. The use of transparent layers of paint creates a sense of depth and dimension, bringing the Curlew to life on the paper with its distinctive features and graceful posture.

There are two original artworks of “Curlew” available, both of which are identical in terms of the artwork itself, but differ in their framing. One original artwork is sold as a framed piece, which enhances the overall presentation and provides a ready-to-hang option for display.

The other original artwork is sold as an unframed piece, which was also used to create limited-edition prints. This allows you to own a piece of Jim Moir’s artwork as it was originally created for the TV show ‘Painting Birds With Jim And Nancy Moir.’ The unframed artwork provides flexibility for you to choose your own framing option according to your personal preference and style, or it can be displayed as-is.

The size of the original painting “Curlew” is to be determined and will be updated accordingly. As original artworks that were painted during the filming of the TV show, these pieces hold a special significance as unique representations of Moirs’ artistic process and his passion for bird art. They are one-of-a-kind pieces that will make captivating additions to any art collection, and cherished artworks for bird enthusiasts, nature lovers, and fans of the TV show “Painting Birds With Jim And Nancy Moir.”
