Watch out for me

The Birds

The Birds is a series of three A1 dimension paintings. Inspiration for these came from Alfred Hitchcocks classic suspense thriller film 'The Birds'.

The paintings incorporate a 1960s female icon with a bird painted with black and white acrylic onto vinyl wallpaper. The wallpaper had a shiny surface so I had to apply a white wash first then painted the figures on.

The first painting is of Twiggy with an Old World Flycatcher, the second is Audrey Hepburn with a Wagtail and the last one is of Tippi Hendren from the original film 'The Birds' with a Blue Tit.

I highly recommend you watch the movie!

These three images were for my acidberry Press Pack. It was aimed for the young at heart who like to stand out in acid bright colours and curious silhouettes.
The photos were taken in colour then I altered them with Photoshop by selecting the main garment and adjusting its hue, then made the rest of the image b&w. The edges of the image were 'burned' to draw the eye in.
