The robin has been chosen as Britains top national bird so I thought I'd capture him on canvas. I enjoyed layering the patterened paper before adding paint.
I start the canvas with a rough pencil sketch and then I add the coloured paper before building up the layers with acrylic paint. The last thing I add are the embellishments of thread, beads, buttons and glitter to pick out or highlight certain areas.
