A painting of three European starlings in flight against a bright purple starry sky, their feathers heightened with gold. This painting is part of a series called ‘The Starling Variations’.
In the winter, starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) congregate in large numbers forming murmurations in the sky, before dropping down into the safety of the reedbeds to roost overnight. The final rays of the sun often catch their wings as they murmurate, producing an astonishing array of colours.
