‘The Daily Briefing’ is the title of this painting which was inspired by a crested budgie called Boris whose disctinctive ‘haircut’ made him look a little like his namesake, Boris Johnson. I painted this during the Covid lockdown in March 2020 when daily briefings were a part of daily life. Boris the budgie is joined by his deputy, for moral support.

This is a tonal painting using just one colour, raw umber, plus white –  a combination which I think gives an interesting antiquated look. I like to experiment with tonal paintings in various colours for different effects.

The painting has been professionally framed in this wooden frame  with a cream coloured satin paint finish.
