Pica Pica

The crow family corvus are cool.  So in January 2016 I made a couple of versions of this screen printed magpie (Pica pica) at the West Yorkshire Print Workshop in Mirfield.  Whilst making the prints magpie were actually chattering in the trees outside and going about their winter business.  The colourful one is handtinted with watercolour paints to give it a feeling of spring and shows off the bright blue and green of Pica pica’s wings and tail.
