Bird-keeper


'Bird-keeper', watercolour resist, 10 by 14 ins., arches WC paper.

A girl with 2 birds on her arms.  One is an owl; the other is anybodies guess!  The girl's hairdo was inspired by Chiana on Farscape as I have been watching re-runs on TV recently.

I have kept pet birds in the past:  parakeets, canaries, finches, and lovebirds, so maybe a little autobiographical.

The original watercolour is fairly light in tone.
