Illustration Friday: Wings

Every night new stars bloom and are carried to the sky by a flock of crows.

I just painted this yesterday, and I'm trying to decide if I should make the birds darker. I want them to look like crows, but I want to be able to see them against the black sky also!


  1. This is just beautiful Jill. Amazing. To me those look EXACTLY like dark black crows with their feathers gleaming in the light of the tree stars. I don't think you should change a thing, it's magical just as it is.

  2. Thank you, Anna! I hope you are doing well! :)

  3. Hmm... Jill, until you said they were crows, I saw them as some-other-bird, perhaps doves?
    Not sure how you could make the crows darker & yet stand out from the sky unless you outlined them with moonlight.
    Love seeing your work - in-progress and completed!

  4. I's lovely as it is with the moonlit crows!

  5. this is lovely just how it is - i also thought they were doves - but don' t change it just do another one with crows and sunshine!

  6. I would leave it alone. Crows or Doves, either way it looks brilliant!
