Described as the punk rockers of the bird world, let’s be honest Guinea Fowl won’t win any prizes for their looks. However, in my book they win hands down for charisma and character.
Sporting wild hair dos on their ridiculously teeny heads and necks, their bodies look out of all proportion. Yet they are amazing guard animals, being very alert and very noisy. They mate for life and are fabulous parents.
This happy celebration of Guineas is painted in watercolour on paper and will come unframed, for you to choose the perfect surrounding to set off their strange beauty.
This is the first time I have painted these birds, but I know it won’t be the last….
