Mixed Media

Flamingo (Sold) is a mixed media work on paper. The idea behind thisĀ piece is to celebrate the quirky brilliance of this incredible bird as an example of natures diversity. The colour useĀ is significant because Flamingo's in some parts of the world are fading due to damage to their habitats therefore to the food sources that give them their brilliant pink colour. Representing the feathers with an unnatural and articifical colour serves to highlight the flamingoes situation.
