The background to my other half’s Fluttershy painting… hoping to finish the rest today!

Avian Inklings

After gaining some recent comments on an older painting (Float (2006)) describing the main figure as similar to a stork, this has inspired me to create a painting centred around avian creatures. In the past I have always been drawn to nautical beings and landscapes, however I am now keen to capture the world of flight. Still running parallel with suspension, the idea of floating and hovering from an otherwise still, inanimate and cemented world, I am interested in the contrast of the permanent and the impermanent. This concept largely follows on from my photography work at university, where I concentrated on critically portraying the significance of layering fleeting objects vs.  inanimate landscapes.
