-Hybrid creature: bird, sheep ears, person’s face, male? – Direct eye line to his upper left. -Pattern and repetition throughout the piece. Particularly in the border around the painting, and is the bird body of the creature. – White lines in the body, legs and wings and mostly the face work to highlight features -Lots of natural lines, with a rectangular border – Colour scheme is made up of neutral colours: Browns, greens, yellows, red-brown and white -The wing in the right looks awkward, like the artist ran out of room. -Brown fills up the background and makes it look “full”. – The painting is pretty flat, and the spacing is off a bit. There are plants in the background which give it a bit of dimension, but the plant on the left is both behind the tail and rooted on the same plain as the feet. – Doesn’t look real – Looks a bit awkwardly put together. – might be a part of a book
