The Bullfinch

The Bullfinch by Jill Smyth

This piece is currently in Arts For All Gallery in Belfast. When I had it on display in St George's Market, customers would often ask "Is that embroidered?" but no, it's all paint. Some people also ask if I use a dropper or some other implement to ensure the dots are all the same size; I don't, I use a paintbrush, a steady hand, and if you look closely, you'll see the dots aren't the same size (and it wouldn't look right if they were).
