Side By Side As Crows

This is my first new post in some time. It was difficult to get started again.

I wanted to take a moment to thank those of you who have sent your supportive comments and great feedback over the past weeks and months. To date, I have received feedback from folks in over one hundred countries. I am touched by your kind words and insights and interesting perspectives.

Special thanks to Christina, a talented photographer from England who posted awesome Kestral photos today on her blog: steeniesphotoblog.wordpress.com  Thank you Christina for your lovely post today.  Please check out Christina’s wonderful photos.  I know these photos will lead to future sketches and paintings.

I am always open to collaboration.  So much of the creative process is a solo experience, it is great to have the oportunity to share it with other creative soles.

    So beautifully done, I love this work. Thank you for stopping by my blog earthSTILLS and liking a post on it. It allowed me to find yours and read about a shared interest in birds, for example. You are more than welcome use any of the African bird images on my blog for inspiration of your beautiful works of art. Look forward to following your blog from this side of the planet!

      Thanks so much for this, your photos are beautiful! I typically do begin most of my drawings looking at photos and yours certainly are inspiring. Looking forward to reading your future posts… from the other side of the world. Thanks again!

    Thanks for liking my post. Not sure how you found it. My husband just got home from your city tonight. He has many warm hearted and sometimes funny stories about many of the people he met while he was there. Hope you are safe and well. Love the crows.

      Hi Robin,
      Thank you for stopping by… each night I spend a little time perusing new posts – there is always something interesting to read or look at – that’s how I found yours! New York is a pretty special place. Thank goodness we are safe and well. Glad you like the work! All the Best,
      Dawn

    Hi Sketch,
    Lovely art work. I can see how challenging it would be (at least for me). I admire artists so much because I don’t draw – only once in a while with the wrong side of my brain. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m honored, and hope you will be back. :)

  16. Beautiful! As a photographer I love the idea of a painter reinterpreting a photo and I particularly like the soft feel of the image. Thanks for checking out my blog and bringing me to yours.

    • sketchjay says:

      Thank you! It is a collaboration of sorts… I often discover new things I may not see when using my own photos. I love the different perspectives. Thanks again for your kind words and for visiting my blog.

  17. Karen says:

    I see you love crows too. Lovely work.
    Thanks.

  18. Bongo says:

    I love the combination of the birds and the background pattern. Quite unique.

  19. Tarp Supply says:

    Thanks for stopping by our blog. What neat work you do! Can’t say I am gifted in the arts, but definitely have an appreciation for it! Looking froward to seeing more of your pieces!

  20. collectivus says:

    Great to see you have regained some inspiration! Looks better than ever!
    Collaborations are indeed a great way to unlock parts of our talents that we have yet to discover!
    In which ways are you looking to collaborate? I would love to help you find someone to explore further with! Thanks for checking out my blog and Lots of love & Luck to you!

    • sketchjay says:

      Thanks so much for this! I really appreciate your stopping by and sharing your thoughts! I am always looking to collaborate with writers and musicians. Your blog is quite interesting… All the best to you,
      Dawn

  21. Thank you for stopping by The Poetry Garden and for liking my post. I’m so glad you did because it’s given me the chance to see your wonderful, intriguing art. I shall be back. Your birds are enticing and so laden with feeling. Happy Wednesday (nearly) to you Sketchjay.

  22. I’d say this piece is something to, er, crow about. And those are very unusual crow tracks you’ve used for a backdrop… : P

    Lovely work. Are you on Twitter? Your work would be perfect for… tweeting. : )

  23. Dora says:

    Thanks for liking my post! I’m glad to have gotten the chance to see your work, it’s just lovely. I love the subtle, soft variations in tone you achieved on the plumage of the crows in this piece… What media did you use for this?

    • sketchjay says:

      Thanks so much Dora for this, I appreciate your visiting my blog. I typically work in water colors and gouache. I love working with oils but have been avoiding them because of the toxic fumes of the turpentine. Your blog is great! All the best.

  24. hitymes says:

    Wow! Lovely picture. Great blog btw, keep it up.
