Bird Prints – beautiful bird illustrations, hand crafted by Gordon Hurden

I am a visual artist whose passion for birds is captured in the exquisite detail of my finely drawn portraits created at my studio in England’s West Country. The myriad of colours and their luminosity as the light shifts is what, for me, makes birds so beautiful and mysterious. Each drawing can take up to 4 weeks and starts life as a rough freehand sketch with all the elements and colour-ways in place before the work of crafting-in the miniature detail begins. I feel my unique graphic style and simplicity of line brings these magnificent birds into sharp focus with intense detail. I am always trying to capture the very essence of their nature and  beauty.

Please look through my gallery and if you like what you see you can buy prints from here. Do get in touch with me, I am always glad to hear from art enthusiasts and other artists. Also I work on a commission basis so do feel free to contact me to discuss your project. I have a Blog where you can read some of my thoughts on software, hardware and enter into a discussion about the value of digital art. I hope you enjoy these bird print illustrations as much I enjoyed creating them.
