Listen to the bird calls while you view the artwork :
In the monsoon, a sports field opposite our balcony got flooded with water. It became a pond for a season. This attracted these Egrets there. We suddenly saw a flock of brilliantly white birds come in, and they stayed the entire season. It was the first time I properly noticed them. And the funniest sight I got to see from the comfort of my balcony was these egrets - that are very tall birds - landing on branches and perching there like they were tiny.
I’ve since learned a lot about birds and have even seen large pelicans sit on branches, but for a younger me who was very new to birdwatching, this was amusing. This painting captures the sight of these tall birds, sitting on branches and tucking their necks into their bodies as they get comfortable.

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.
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 email@example.com 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.
