I wanted to paint something distinctly spiritual, mystical and out of the realms and norms of reality. ?Magic? manifested after long discussions with my daughter about spiritualism and various beliefs in witches, fairies, angels etc. I determined to paint one of those, but not based on any preconceived idea. I wanted to attempt to bring a sense of magic, with peace and wonder to the characters in my painting . I allowed my imagination to flow and ?Magic? arrived on my canvas. She took me about 8 days to complete, being oils it?s slower, but interestingly I was able to capture her in monochrome very quickly with the light just seeming to want to burst out of the piece.

I sketched the lady and the bird on the canvas using a thin wash of burnt sienna. Then I filled in creating the strongest values in monochrome. A limited pallet of oil colors was then laid out and I added the colors to complete the painting.
