We have these wonderful stone walls and slightly dilapidated fences all around where we live. They mark off the different farm fields and are often populated with crows in the early evening. I thought it made for a great subject, they almost look like they are catching up on the day’s events. I used a variety of techniques to depict the lush grasses, fence and stones by “sticking” some cheesecloth to my watercolour paper with gesso. Painting over this with watercolour and ink resulted in some great textures.
