The Red-cheeked Cordon Bleu is a charming little bird that derives its name from the vivid red patches adorning its cheeks, which contrast beautifully with its striking cobalt-blue plumage. This striking combination of colours makes it a visual masterpiece, while their social nature and lively behaviours make them a joy to observe. These birds are known for their intricate and beautifully woven nests, showcasing their architectural finesse.

Native to the grasslands, savannas, and open woodlands of sub-Saharan Africa, the Red-cheeked Cordon Bleu is a petite bird that adds a touch of vibrancy to its natural habitat. As granivores, these birds primarily feed on a diet of small seeds and grains. They also possess an extraordinary ability to extract water from their food, enabling them to survive in arid and water-scarce environments. Their role in the ecosystem involves both contributing to seed dispersal and insect control. The resilience and resourcefulness of this captivating species, make them a symbol of both beauty and adaptability in the African savannas.

Museum Grade Archival Printing

All prints are done with high quality archival pigment-based inks on 100% acid-free, museum-grade fine art papers.

Gilcée Prints (or Archival Prints) are designed to last you a really long time. These are printed on an inkjet printer which ‘sprays ink’. These printers use 12 pigment-based inks instead of the usual 4 dye-based inks, so colour reproduction is more accurate.

The paper is also textured, similar to the papers that the original paintings are made on, making them look very much like an actual painting, rather than a print. 

There can be a minor difference in colours in the physical prints from what you see on screen.

Fantastic print! The quality is fabulous.

I loved everything about the print! I could see the brushstrokes and everything, I almost thought it was an original, haha. It was so well packaged, tamper proof and comes with a backing to prevent any damage in transit. Also everything was so beautifully packed with so many little details and it was a lovely experience to open it up.

Loved the print AND the packaging!

The print is so beautiful!! Really made me feel like I was receiving a lovely present. Wonderful packaging and fab quality. Loveddddd the painting too of course. And I appreciate that it came with care instructions!

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the artwork look exactly like the images?

Please note that you're looking at digital images of the artwork. Each and every laptop or phone screen displays colours differently. Expect mild variations in colour from what you see on screen.

I assure you that the print inevitably looks 100 times better in person. 😄

What medium was used for this artwork?

All these paintings were done using Artist Grade Gouache on Italian Acid-Free Hot Pressed paper. This is a printed reproduction of the original artwork. If you'd like to view my originals, click here.

Is the frame included?

No, the price includes the artwork, without the frame. The frame shown in the image is for representation purpose only. If you'd like to discuss options of framing, please write to after placing your order.

How should I preserve the print?

To ensure longevity, please try not to handle the print with bare hands, or clean and dry your hands thoroughly before handling.

Keep the print out of direct sunlight as that can cause mild discolouration of the paper over time.

The print is done on museum grade acid-free paper. However, framing it with glass would help you to protect it a lot better.

When framing, use a mount board to prevent the glass from directly touching the paper.

When will the artwork be shipped?

Your artwork will be shipped within 10 working days after your order is placed.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, the shipping cost will be added at checkout. Please write to for any queries.
