crow in progress

Spending a lot of time painting tiny shifts in value on this crow. She’s coming along slowly though.

I picked up some Acryla gouache this morning and it is fantastic. The primary black is so rich and dark - even when it has dried. I really love it so far.

And, if you have ever drawn (or even looked hard at) a bird and not wondered at how they are actually very small, feathered dinosaurs then you are seriously missing out.
