I finally had a few hours to paint and play. I was in the mood for some more crows.
These are all pretty small.
One painting on Twinrocker paper called Little Crow.
Two watercolor monoprints on BFK Rives paper.
One called Things are Looking Up (not great but I thought I'd share anyway).
I don't have a press so rolled the prints onto the soaked paper with a hand roller. On the first, the bird was too pale and splotchy (like the sky and ground) so I went back in with watercolors and added color. BFK Rives is soft so you can't do much additional work to it, hence the soft look.
The second one, called Bird Bath Crow is also on BFK Rives. I left the crow alone (put a lot more pigment on the plate before transferring the image to the paper).
And then playing with just splattering paint on paper and rolling the treetrunks on (with paint on a piece of cork pierced with a thick needle so it rolls).
Just calling this one Green. It's 1/4 sheet and I was just playing around, nothing in mind, lots of splatters.
After so long not being able to paint anything new, it was fun to play and see what happened.
This is what it became. Could use some more darks, I think.
