Colin the Crow

This funny shaped piece of wood was destined for the wood burner. Just as I was going to throw it in I had an epiphany....that looks like a birds head and yes it was, cos it turned into Colin the Crow!!
                                                     He can't see yet.......

                                                      Eye, eye

                                                          Here he is in his box.

The background is crumpled tissue, painted a gorgeous blue and then the creases gently rubbed with a red oil pastel. His feathers are some black paper cut into the shape of feathers and stuck on one by one. He is not quite finished yet but he looks quite comfy looking at me with his beady eye!

                                          Archie thinks he's more handsome than Colin....which of course he is!
