I love painting blackbirds and crows as they have such character, and am looking forward to doing more of them in acrylics, maybe on a larger scale than I normally work.

With the onset of the Easter holidays I have the prospect of a few days of creativity ahead of me. I have lots of ideas that I want to pursue including sewing, collage, painting, printing and crochet. Unfortunately I pulled out loads of equipment in the studio to fuel my ideas and now there's no space to do anything! To prevent a completely wasted day I retreated to my desk and painted a blackbird! I've painted this one before but in gouache. I have an idea for a series of darker, more sinister paintings and think acrylic will be a more suitable medium to achieve this.
