Mixed Media- Ink and crayon on paper
From being very rare and only seen in Wales, I've had an obsession with these since the shock viewing of these birds some years ago in the Chilterns.
Now they are everywhere and easily seen.
I create the background first. Ink was dropped onto wet paper and allowed to 'bleed' through the paper. The drawing here has been done on the reverse of this paper as I liked how the ink came through on this side.
Additional ink was added later to give the impression of the bird coming out of the dark.
