Bird Wegtail, Mix media

Those beautiful artwork of the Wegtail bird, the bird that is the first sign of the Fall Season here in Israel.
I prepared the cardboard cut out of the bird in 2 parts from a used cardboard box; the body & the wing with the long tail of the wegtail.
Step 1, white paper was torn to cover the body of the bird. The torn paper was glued on the body.
Step 2, using black paint and a (home made) cardboard stamp they covered the cutout wing /tail of the wegtail.

Step 3, while the bird dryed the members created the background with pastels or torn magazine paper.
