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. 



  1. Nice words Maree! I believe it if you are saying they are intelligent. I just love them! I always have the feeling you can easely make contact with them. I always talk to them en have the feeling they listening and know exact what I am saying.
    Anyway: your sketches are beautiful!

  2. Thank you Renate! And you're right, they DO listen and I really think they understand and take their cue from tone of voice and body language.
