Blossom Crow

This one took AGES. There were times were it sat on the easel for days in that middle "ugly phase" where you've got your mid-tones down but no detail but I'm glad I persisted because in real life it's cerise and creamy powdery blue. Very happy with this one!

As for my titling process, I go with what I call it in my head while I work on it. Perhaps "High-Wire Act" would be better, but I got so used to calling it "Blossom Crow"- as in "gotta get back to work on that Blossom Crow monstrosity" - that I couldn't bear to call it anything else.

Acrylic on canvas, 16"x20", 2010
