I really like the way the crows turned out on this drawing and I am going to explore this idea. I am trying to draw and paint things in a manner that express the object for the things they symbolize. crows are often associated with something dark or death so I drew them as if they were a dark cloud that pressed together creating the figure of the crow. The lines give each figure a swirling movement within itself. I think that this more accurately portrays a crow than drawing it materialistically.
