Ink and watercolour on watercolour paper. 297 x 420 mm ( 11.69 x 16.53 in), 2020.
Originally created as at-shirt design, this painting of two mischievous starlings became one of my favourites. If anything, starlings are real characters in the garden. They appear in a group out of nowhere, raid all the bird feeders, then most of them leave. Some might remain, and then you can listen to their chit-chat in the bushes... A pleasant sound I couldn't believe was coming from these rascals! In this painting I also wanted to show their beauty, the amazing greenish shine in their plumage with the golden dots along their body.
This painting was made as a t-shirt design. T-shirts and notebooks printed with this pattern are available in my Etsy store!
