Crow with Fries

This gained a spot on my sketching to-do list after I read an article about its recent installation. Today was the day.

But just as I was getting ready to leave, the door bell rang. It was the mail carrier with a package for signature: my Rosemary & Co. Series 772 Sable Blend Dagger 1/2 inch brush. It’s the one Liz Steel uses. So, perfect… I gave it a quick wash and put it in my kit to use for today’s sketching.

“Crow with Fries” was sculpted by Peter Reiquam and installed at Les Grove Park in Auburn on 5/31/19. “Inspired by the park’s many resident crows, this clever corvid reminds us that a drive-in restaurant once stood at this site.

I’m rather partial to crows and have read two of the popular science books by UW crow researcher, John Marzluff.

And the brush?  I really like it.  The dagger shape allows for very fine lines with the pointed tip and broad washes.  It picks up just the right amount of water and pigment.
