Twa Corbies by kenket Twa Corbies by kenket
Based on an old Scottish poem about a murder and lunch.
And a lighter version for people with darker monitors then me. ;>

This is wonderful. I've always liked the song versions of this poem. Really nice illustration of the poem.

Oh dear, this deserves :+fav: for the poem/song alone but that's not all, the painting is amazing and in traditional media as well, double love! Or triple? Anyway. The composition works very well, too; there are many things going on with the text and the details in the painting yet it doesn't look crowded.

Thanks for making my day! I think it's time to go and listen to some Steeleye Span again...

Wow this is gorgeous! I much prefer this ballad to the 'faithful' version where the corbies go hungry.

wow. I had a similar idea, to paint the scene and add the poem in calligraphy, but I'm still working on it, maybe I won't bother now I have yours to look at !

You know Cecile Corbel sung a version of Twa Corbies (Two Ravens)? It's beautiful! I love how you draw crows!

Beautiful piece! I always enjoyed that poem - especially since I'm a corvid freak. ;-)

Brilliance. I love that song. Came across your picture while listening to it. The entire picture is great, but I especially like the tree. Awesome.
