Two For Joy
This Magpie illustration began the way I start my drawings and paintings sometimes. This means no planning whatsoever. Just making a start and seeing where my imagination takes me.
Magpies are fascinating birds. They are clearly intelligent.and Although they appear somewhat aggressive, I find them appealing. Partly because of the clumsy way in which they fly. Their colouring is dramatic and quite beautiful.
Drawn on a textured paper, this artwork developed quite organically. Like most of my work, if it has any meaning, I would prefer for the viewer of the artwork to take their own meaning from it. This illustration is not typical of my work. I may be setting off in a new direction.
I wanted the eyes in the human face to be engaging. It is always important to me to have them connect with the viewer.
I used two different brands of top quality lightfast coloured pencils to create this original artwork. The completed piece is sealed with a protective fixative coating.
