The Blue Bird

Here is a lovely study of birds for a playbill design at the Haymarket Theatre in London. At a time it would have been hard to find good photographic reference, these were probably drawn from observation and the imagination.

Hi Thom,
This is great. I love the bluebirds, the dancers, and the design of the playbill.
