Mountain Magpies

Magpies are graceful, friendly, and fun to watch, I see them often on my walks in the foothills. This pair of charmers have realistic colored pencil shading, black paint or markerwing tips, and a touch of iridescence on their wings on their tails The background is made up of a combination of bonded and turned and bonded appliqué to create a natural setting for our feathered friends. Dimensional aspen leaves and columbines complete the picture with wispy clouds and a settingmoon adding a bit ofrealistic detail. These multiple techniques will add variety, texture, and interest to your art quilt
