Artist's description:

One of the loveliest things about becoming known as a collector of vintage ephemera are the like-minded people who introduce themselves to me. One such person, Stephen, works in my local Oxfam shop and has given me a whole bunch of wonderful sheet music that was so badly damaged it was destined for the trash.
The music manuscript fragments I have used for this little Songbird Collection comes from a leatherbound "scrapbook" of music that I think dates from the early 1800s but I can't be sure.
I keep returning to British songbirds, no apologies, I work in my garden and so they are my constant companions and muses. I decided to illustrate the antique music with some of Britain's popular songbirds.
Songbird No 12 is the Willow Warbler...
The paper is a lovely creamy colour (the scan of the artwork is too white) and the music print is worn and faded as you would expect from a little piece of history.

Painted in watercolours and a little acrylic, mounted in a soft white mount and framed in a contemporary black frame.

Materials used:

watercolours and a little acrylic on antique music manuscript
