What a good idea to show detail from paintings, Tom. More, please
Tom Wilson: It's something I do quite often when visiting galleries - one can often interesting images of small scenes, like this.
I details of paintings like this, Tom. Sometimes they're even better than the whole.
Tom Wilson: I think you'd have enjoyed the whole of this one too, Ginnie.

Hondecoeter = dogcooter, crazy Dutch name. Looking at those feathers, he included a surprising lot of detail.
Tom Wilson: What a curious name for the bird!
Very nice movement.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Mary - or, rather, thanks to the artist!
