A Murder of Crows
One crow, sorrow,
two crows, joy,
three crows for a girl,
four crows for a boy,
five crows for silver,
six crows for gold,
seven crows for a secret that's never been told.
- Ashe Corven
A daily practice of sketching and painting gives you a chance to exercise the big three P's
- practice, practice, practice!
A collection of crow sketches done on a free Textured back-ground from Boccacino - first I print out the texture on watercolour paper and then paint the sketches on top of that.
Although cultures around the world may regard the crow as a scavenger, bad omen, or simply a nuisance, this bad reputation might overshadow what could be regarded as the crow’s most striking characteristic – its intelligence.
