Yes you've guessed - another bird on a newspaper page

Yes - we get chaffinchs too in our garden
Close up of the layers of paint and the paint stamping
The page in situ - copied print on white paper, torn, and painted with water colours to make it look a bit more original

This is the last one for now - but I do intend to add lots more to this book

Thank  you for looking at this so far and for your very encouraging comments

You either love them or hate them - but you have to admit they are stunning

Yes it is the Starling.
He's coloured with copics over watercolours

So, are they thieving thugs in your garden?  Or gorgeous shimmery irridescent rainbow works of art?  I do have a love/hate relationship with starlings.  I marvel at their gorgeous colours in the sunshine, and their sharp brain - but now and again I do despair when they arrive in 'gangs' and 'hog' all the seeds!

Another newspaper page - painted with acrylics in layers.  Image printed onto white paper and painted with the hope that I have captured his colours.

I rather like him anyway
Off to make another

Have you guessed yet which book the images came from?

I'll tell you tomorrow
