Old Crow


Like all the faces from the Native Americana series, the image “Old Crow” began on a solid black canvas, the eyes, nose, mouth, and the subject’s expression gradually taking shape as a result of dry-brushing gradations of white onto the black. Skin tones were laid in bit by bit with thin layers of watered-down acrylic pigment until the desired hue became apparent. Hair, feathers and beadwork we carefully painted in to complete the composition as it took shape on the neutral, air-brushed background.
