Ink and watercolour on paper. 420 x 594 mm, 2021.
Greyhead is an old name for jackdaws. In old times they were referred to as "jacks" or just "daws", but I really liked the name greyhead. It has this reference to an old person who's hair had gone grey, like some old wise man. And jackdaws are smart birds indeed.
Still what I like the most about them is their funny sound! I can't include that in this painting, but whenever I look at it in my head I can hear that high-pitched "caw", like a horn on a kid's tricycle!
This painting is a follow-up to my rook portrait, "Bone Raven".
