Since I was going to be away on my actual birthday, I painted this crow before I left. I wanted it to be my birthday painting so I splattered masking fluid (Pebeo Drawing Gum) and then lots of bright colors around to simulate confetti.
Then I left town.
When I returned, I removed the masking fluid and colored in some of the white spots in yellow, just for fun. So here is my
Arches 140# cold press watercolor paper
Daniel Smith watercolors + Dr. Ph. Martin's Fine Art Watercolor
It's so dark from just 3 colors over the watercolor I did have on there =
watercolor inks in Phthalo Blue + Deep Red Rose + Gamboge
(I bought the colors for a Myrna Wacknov workshop a year or so ago and didn't use all of the inks then so...time to get them out and make that crow really dark.)
My birthday is past, but I wanted to share my latest crow painting. I've been hearing and seeing 5 crows flying over the house lately, cawing as they go :)
So many birds,
so little time!
