Here are two paintings finished this week where the subject of the good old Australian Magpie presented me with the challenge to paint them showing that there's more to them than just being black and white. I used lovely varieties of blues, pinks, yellows to create interesting blacks and greys ensuring I carried the same colours throughout the painting as a whole.
