Black Crow, March Journal page

crow with stick in beak

Spring has been showing hints through March of her arrival. And with the change of seasons. the crows that dwell in the woods beyond my window have begun collecting materials to build their nests.

I used a photo I took of a crow as inspiration for the drawing for this journal page. Using a dip pen and Higgin's calligraphy black ink, I drew the bird and then add washes of color. The Higgin's ink is light and has hints of brown. I then added some De Atramentis document ink in blue. The background is a mix of gesso and Daniel Smith's rich green gold acrylic.
