Ravens Fall


“Ravens Fall” 2016. 16″ x 10″ Acrylic impasto on Strathmore acrylic paper applied using palette knife. Oblique lighting on this photo emphasizes impasto effect.


Quoth, the Raven


Prismacolor and Verithin colored pencils on Strathmore Bristol Vellum, 8″x8″. Background: Crayola watercolor pencils. Working from a photo to practice blending and contrast. Verithin pencils are harder and more permanent, so I use them to lay down the basic drawing and dark color scheme. Prismacolor pencils are softer and brighter, so I use them for color composition and blending.
