First I began with a huge wooden canvas. Just started with lots of scraps of paper and using gel medium began gluing them down. No real plan, just cover the canvas! This is so fun and addicting.
next step is to sketch out my crow onto the canvas. Then using a bit of blue paint, put in the background. Starting to take shape!
My crow looks like a crow, or penguin... used reds, purples, browns in the body of the crow. Use fingers, toothbrushes to make great textures.
Here she is, all done!
Happily this painting sold, for a print.
