It’s been a creative old week.  This weeks prompts form Lifebook 2017 were a mixed media humming bird and making affirmation cards.  My humming bird wanted to be a crow….

a rainbow crow!  I want to go back to the humming bird lesson and get a humming bird this time, hopefully over the weekend!

I used neocolour crayons and watercolours initially but found them not intense enough for the crow.  I added another layer of neocolour crayons but this time smudged them with my finger rather than wetting them-it gave a lovely intensity.

I used a mix of paynes grey and vandyke brown for the background and then splatter with acrylic paint and edging using gesso and ink.
