MORE BITS AND PIECES



Just a few bits from the larger painting I'm doing (full sheet).  Will show the whole thing once I get it finished and entered at the end of the week.  Wish me luck!!





While doing some reading about crows, I found out that crow eggs can be a lot of different colors, from a beige or green background with mottled bits to a reddish color with wine and maroon mottles.  The most boring ones are beige with olive mottled bits on it.  I chose to depict the prettier version.  Have to have some "round" things to make my painting work at this stage.  My friend, Sharon, recommended something shiny (which crows like to collect) so I will make the small ball more shiny using irridescent paint and darkening the bottom.  And what would crows be without a full moon?  Or a pretty stone dropped on the ground.
