Watercolour, acrylic and ink on 140 lb. Arches cold press.
I wanted to incorporate photos I had taken of ravens during our trip to Alaska last year into a painting, and decided to combine the poem by Poe and the raven image to create a somewhat Halloween like atmosphere. This was painted relatively quickly using the wet in wet method after the initial acrylic line work had dried. It just about painted itself, as I felt I was driven to keep putting brush to paper even though my head kept saying “slow down”. My hand just wouldn’t listen.
