I saw some Wagtails catching flies over a river in a little village called Clapham and watched in admiration as they darted about. This is the start of the drawing; it is a repeating pattern so the clouds line up top and bottom. This is the single tile and when it is copied and put next to its original it will repeat for ever! The idea is to get a kind of spiraling up or down effect going on. I’ll post up the final piece when I’ve finished it.
