BRITISH BIRDS

A private study of British Birds, for which I began with the starling. 

I love garden birds and the starling particularly drew me in with it's galaxy-like pattern.

I used inks with brushes and dip pens to create the textures, colours and patterns, and metallic gold ink for the apple blossom on each. I wanted the bird to stand out, so  I left these deliberately simple.
