A clarion call is a strongly expressed demand or request for action. This crow chose the top of a dead tree to express his demands. His requests were not completely clear, but maybe he was trying to tell us humans to clean up our acts.
This is a torn paper collage on gallery-wrapped canvas, with gold acrylic paint highlights.
Moving from the graphite version of this fine fellow, I decided to do a watercolour study this time. As if often does with me, it turned into a bit of mixed media piece. So, here we have watercolour, a tiny touch of ink, some watersoluble graphite, and just a smidge of gouache. As always, my camera has washed out the blue background some. It’s more vibrant in real life.
Next up will be the seagull in watercolor. At least, that’s my intention! Who knows? And then all three of these birds will get the collage treatment.
