Crows and a tribute to friendship March 06 2018, 0 Comments

The past three months I've been working on three commissions.

All of them celebrate friendship and turning 50.

This is a glimpse behind the first one.

The first layer is a collage of little bits of old paper.
Then the sketch of the crows on stumps. The sky is rough.

The next part is adding a flannel wing on of each birds.
A nod to the friendship of the commission.

I love painting the black of the crows. They are starting to come alive!

Time for the details. Wings, feathers, sand, logs and sea grass.

The finished piece.
