Whilst creating sketches and drawings throughout my major project, i had been primarily creating work on white paper with black dots to represent the birds. However, after finding some black card, i decided to create some small line drawings. the aim was to create them to capture the flow of a murmuration.
I began trying with acrylic paint and watercolours, but it didn’t give the vivid effect i wanted so instead i used a correction marker (tipex pen)
I noticed the similarities the drawings had to smoke. The way that smoke rises and flows was similar to the movement and patterns created during a starling murmuration.
