The only difference is that I've not been doing my morning 75 for $75 oil studies. The studies seem to loosen me up and make me a better painter for the rest of the day. I really hadn't stopped doing the studies - it just seems that other things were taking priority for the past two weeks. So now I'm back to doing a little study first thing in the morning....hoping it'll make the bigger studio pieces come a little easier.
I realized this morning that I've never painted a crow before - so this is the first. As I was painting the study, I was reminded of the fish crows that I hear while painting on location in South Carolina. They call back and forth to each other and sound exactly like they're having a conversation.
Crow #1: uh - oh, uh - oh!
Crow #2: huh?
Crow #1: uh - oh!
Crow #2: Oh!
The other night I watched a fabulous documentary, 'A Murder of Crows' (Netflix) about these highly intelligent birds. It's a fascinating film that I really enjoyed.
