I've been creating a series of work in Ink with high grade watercolour paper. I'm particularly pleased with this lovely Robin. I've worked on the background in a series of layers first and then I look at it and think about what animal would work best and in what composition. Its tricky as the ink does it own thing and spreads in ways i'm not expecting. So every piece is very original and a one off.
I've probably been influenced by the fact that outside my studio is pair of nesting robins and they've just had chicks. So there is lots of lovely bird calls and these robins are working hard collecting food in my garden.
