Birds - Archaeopterix

My sample for Archie,as I call Archaeopterix  

I am working on a textile art journal with a theme of Birds for my MAJOR FINAL PROJECT for college. This is my sample for Archie's page. Archie is one of about eight fossils aged around 140 to 150 million years old, and is thought to be a link between dinosaurs and birds. However, as he came before any of the bird-like dinosaurs there is quite a bit of controversy - that's all science, I'll just get on with the art! I'm using printed organza, with some orange and blue fabrics (complementary colours) and some albatrosses flying. This may not be the final layout but I do like it.
