Twelvetide: The first five days of Christmas
In the spirit of Christmas I have painted five festive watercolour sketches! They illustrate the first five days of Christmas (or "Twelvetide") as sung in the Christmas carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas". From the top left to the bottom right they show: a partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves, three French hens, four calling birds (Eurasian bullfinches), and five gold rings (as presented in the feathers of a stately peacock). Merry Christmas, from the Twelvetide birds and myself!
