Willow by Amy Crook

Willow, 12″x9″ watercolor on Strathmore watercolor paper

Labor Day is over, so here’s some art to start your week!

The last rosy blush of sunset gives way to bands of color in the clear sky. A hint of wind blows the branches of a willow and carries two ravens in their flight.

If you’re the sort to count corvids, two is for joy!

Above, you can see the subtle fade of color through the sky, and the detailed silhouette of the ravens. The framed photo below shows the colors best, and demonstrates the larger size and really highlights the way the tree breaks the borders of the sky, adding a surrealist tinge.
