I have been working on this larger piece for a while. The colours are more muted than I often use but fit with my mood and the season – late autumn with its short and gloomy days. Ever-present ravens still flap overhead though animating the sky. To my thinking, this painting just shows three or four ravens as they move through time and across space. Details below.
Layering oil paint then scraping to reveal colours below results in a sky that glows like an opal.
Ravens do like to perch on the very top of the tree!
I love how this glows and the sketchiness of it.

So much energy, as if it’s in quiet yet constant motion, really wonderful.
Thank you! I love that “quite yet constant motion”!
