I started this painting drawing Magpies in my sketch book. Then the shapes of Magpies onto paper which I cut out and placed onto my canvas until I was happy with the composition. Then drawing these shapes onto my canvas and working with charcoal, oil stick and oil paint and paper collage to achieve the finished painting. The paper I used for the collage is from 1950’s school text books.
Magpie Song, I am very happy with the result.
