Essay: 

So characteristic of Philip Ferdinand de Hamilton's paintings of live birds his crisp drawing style depicts these ducks in their natural setting with almost photographic detail. The deep blues, reds and oranges in the landscape are typical of his palette. While oil on paper is a rare medium for him it is not unknown. A pair of unusual studies of Funghi, that were with this gallery in 2006, were painted on paper and laid onto canvas.
