Initial scribbled idea, a few weeks ago for the continuation of my magpie series.

This was a scan pretty far along actually. Forgot to do any earlier ones. 

I barely did any sketching before launching into the paint for this piece. I had the initial thumbnail sketch as reference. I sketched the woman, and the rest of it was just done on the fly.
