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.
