Red Kites are the stars of mid-Wales. Once persecuted by farmers they are now supported by conservation efforts and are again thriving. Their calls echo round the hills and they often swoop down low past cars that are driving through country lanes. So here I have tried to capture a sense of movement and vitality through colour, texture and layers.

My process for this piece was to start the canvas with expressive strokes of acrylic paint and add in drips of fluid acrylic. Over this I sprayed through stencils and lace and then used a mask to protect the area for the bird whilst adding translucent layers of acrylic in an impasto way that gives the piece a lot of textural interest. I used matt acrylic to prepare the canvas for the Inktense pencil work which I layered to build up the painting of this original red kites art.

I took the reference photos for this painting myself on a trip to the Red Kite sanctuary in mid-Wales. It was feeding time and the spectacle of these beautiful birds swooping in for food was awesome.
