Preliminary drawings for a painting exploring birds (the magpie), space (on earth) and duality (opposing and complimentary forces).
These drawings are (to me) very two-dimensional, as I drew from photographs. I will do hand drawings (from life) by observing magpies in local surrounds. Being birds (walking and flying) magpies will have a very different understanding of space. Drawing in nature will hopefully add more spatial dimensions and understandings to future drawings for this subject.
