Paintings, AcrylicsWhen starlings congregate in vast groups and dance in the evening sky before going to roost, it's called a murmuration. The original painting is no longer available, and is shown here for your viewing pleasure. However, you can buy prints and I have greetings cards [sf_button colour="gold" type="rounded" size="standard" link="http://pixels.com/featured/murmuration-jane-tomlinson.html" target="_blank" icon="fa-arrow-right" dropshadow="no" extraclass=""]Buy prints![/sf_button]
In the evening starlight, a murmuration of starlings flies off to roost in the reedbeds at dusk. I have tried to express the glow of pinky-golden light on the birds’ feathers.
My brother Paul filmed this thrilling murmuration on his iPhone at Stanton Harcourt in February 2015 which went viral on social media!
