'Chirp chirp A sparrow hops and flitters Jumps and flutters From branch To branch...'
This is Maxwell. He is such a little chirper. I drew him the other day in charcoal which he seemed to quite like, then I went in with some oil pastel and completely ruined it. I thought I’d forget it but he was chirping away in my head so I had to draw him again. This time it’s charcoal, pastel and watercolour on Canson watercolour paper 11” x 8” He's now singing merrily. He would need to go to a home that doesn't mind him singing away (in your imagination anyway!)
My drawings aim to show the subject's beauty with a gentle sensitive touch. Maxwell is framed in a black wooden frame and is ready to hang or he will sit on a table...
I have written a blog post about the making of Maxwell
