Magpie, pen and watercolours

I love magpies, and I enjoyed capturing the character of this one on paper! Using one of my own photos for inspiration, I first sketched the outline in pencil before completing the drawing using Sakura Pigma Micron pens.

I then decided that it needed some colour, so used Winsor and Newton watercolours to make the blue and green feathers stand out!

The original work has found a home so is not for sale, but like many more of my recent drawings, paintings and photographs, this has been scanned and is now available to purchase as prints and on various products from my Redbubble shop!
