Collage on paper
76x56cms (paper size)
This Rook collage is made from a variety of coloured paper pieces – blues, greys, blacks, built up over several layers to create the feather patterns and the bone structure underneath. I start with a drawing and this one comes from a week I spent on the island of Colonsay in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland.
Collages are very time-consuming as each piece of paper is hand cut and then hand stuck. I only do one a year!
