I pre-wet the paper (1/2 sheet Killimanjaro/Cheap Joe's Brand 140# watercolor paper) after I put some miskit on the crows in places. Then drizzled the color down from the top to the bottom using a big, juicy brush full of wet color. Put the crows in last.
I like the start of this but not sure where I'm going with it...sometimes the painting just leads you so I'm waiting for it to do that. I may miskit over the birds, as they are, and then go a bit crazy with the drizzles to make them more distinct?
As I was posting this, I heard a crow cawing outside my window - does that mean he agrees with that option or not?
