A watercolour to crow about
Alison saw this crow while out walking along a river tow path. He was splashing around in a puddle. It was a really bright day and his feathers were gleaming. She's captured it beautifully. Hard to believe this is her first attempt at painting a crow. I bet she was tempted to hang on to this one so I'm doubly delighted it's flown to me. Alison achieved the beautiful blacks of the crow with W&N Neutral Tint mixed with Indigo and Winsor Blue.
The painting came with a beautiful card printed with one of Alison's gorgeous photos of deer in London's Richmond Park. It's close to Alison's home. I'm really tempted to visit!
