A few year's ago, I took a workshop with Myrna Wacknov at Kanuga in North Carolina. It was great fun and she shared so much information. One thing I really liked and intended to use was a Golden product called Micaceous Iron Oxide. It's taken me this long to get around to buying some and then longer before I finally opened it and used it.
Of course, it lends itself to crows!
I painted the crow with the Micaceous Iron Oxide over the painted background of acrylic inks so the painting is all acrylic. The Micaceous Iron Oxide is a gritty product and you can lay it on thick or thin. I think I'll play with it again soon...

You never know when something you learn in a workshop turns up in your own work later - sometimes months or even years later. But you keep the information in your head until it's time. Thanks, Myrna!
