I’ve been working with feathers again and taking impressions onto a very fine Japanese paper called Maruishi, beautiful paper. The intention is to build an image in layers. I’m making use of paper stencils in the work as well, for instance, a circle, a ripple, a wrought iron gate and images of birds in flight. This is one of the cut paper stencils and I love the way the feathers leave an impression on the birds. This is the bit that gets thrown away! Here are the colours rolled out ready for inking the feathers: turquoise, dark violet and black.
