Forest Call - Original Gouache Painting
11"x14" gouache on Arches coldpress watercolor paper.
Some friends and I ventured to the redwood forests in Oakland, and it was so beautiful and peaceful. There was a large crow or raven flying overhead occasionally, and it was very vocal! I had caught a glimpse of it flying overhead and sketched it in. While painting the rest of the glowing forest, I waited for it to come back but it was nowhere to be seen. Finally, giving in, I packed my bags, and just as I was zipping up my bag I saw the crow's shadow glide overhead. It got the last laugh!
