'Air Mail'

Still catching up with my art back log. Here's another painting for you:
Air Mail
Watercolour / Gouache
24 x 31cm
Again these two characters feature in 'A Quarter Past One On Platform Ten' in the top left swooping under the arched station roof. I'd like to think there are different birds used to deliver post depending on the destination, maybe seagulls for the coast, an albatross for long over sea journeys (especially in the North) and an owl for night dispatch. Ravens and crows are without doubt the early morning delivery fleet.

I love how you have created a sense of drama, motion, location and time. Wouldn't I love to be the mouse in this illustration!
