Starting the new crow series


When I made those two crow quilts I showed a few weeks ago, I made a third. It stayed in the thread sketch stage for about a year.


Later I colored it in using fugitive media: charcoal, chalk and ordinary colored pencils. Then I used ProChem base extender which is a semi-fluid clear acrylic to cover and make the media permanent.



If you squint, you can see I added mountain ranges below in a lime inktense pencil. My first project is to create a landscape at the bottom. I like the crow just flying but I think the landscape will put it "above the earth". Stay tuned.

    1. This one is finished but the other two are still in the thread sketch stage. It's like white page fear, I'm paralyzed.....

  3. YOU are procrastinating?! This must be an important project. Your crow is very sophisticated, reminding me of Leonardo drawings...
