Good sized watercolour of a Tawny Owl - beautifully depicted sitting on a tree branch with blackberry fruit and leaves to the bottom RHS and ivy painted in the LHS corner. A Peacock butterfly is placed at the bottom of the painting. Colours very good and detail really lovely - typical of Coppillie's work.
