Bird Song is an Abstract ink Brush Drawing by Josephine Window. Layered figures. Drawn on stretched canvas. Abstract Expressionism, gestural styles. Materials Used: Indian ink (permanent black ink) and metallic gold, silver and copper acrylic paints on stretched canvas. Ready to hang. Description: I take lines, movements, shapes and forms from the life model to build an abstract, layered figure composition. I love to work quickly to music, because this allows freedom and spontaneity in my expression. The bird is a Spangled Drongo It has glossy black plumage, a forked tail and red eyes. This bird is very special to me because it came to the rainforest near our house. it has a wonderful musical song. When I mimic its call, it sings back to me! I like to use linear techniques and patches of colours for my ink drawings. The movement of these lines is organic in feeling. I created this with black, gold, silver and copper colours. Influences: woman, bird, melodious song, the body, dance, music, dynamism, spontaneity, drama. Drawn from the life model at a Friday morning Dynamic Drawing session, Byron Bay Australia. This artwork has been stored since 2011 and finished in my studio this year. *️⃣Please Note: Artwork in setting, is for display only, and not to scale. © Josephine Window 2011 & 2022.

I create my art with passion, happiness and a sense of being lucky. Contemporary abstract style is the most natural to me. Important influences are nature in many forms, the human body and people. As I develop the picture, a story evolves in my imagination. My expression is inspired by life's complexity and energies. Major areas of work are painting and drawing. Painting The subject and style determine whether I work in oils, mixed media or acrylic paints. I love to paint with complex colour interactions and challenging compositions. In my Colour Circle series of oil paintings, my interest is in the dynamics between emotions and visual impact of colour. I use complex colour structures and layers of texture. A formal style brings coherence and harmony to the picture. For me, oil painting is a slow, thoughtful process. Drawing In my current drawing practice I use layers of lines and colours in mixed media to form the composition and develop my ideas into stories. I love to draw quickly and spontaneously to music. The life model, props and music provide the catalyst for me to enter the world of my imagination. I attend weekly Dynamic Drawing sessions at Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia.
