Owain's Ravens

After the 'magpie' picture, I have been working on a new painting based on a story from the Mabinogion. It is from The Dream of Rhonabwy, the bit where Owain's Ravens are abused by King Arthurs pages and then 'kick off' big time when a yellow speckled staff/standard is raised. Owain and Arthur carry on playing chess while all this is happening. For more information you'll just have to read it yourself......if you've got a few days spare.

Just to keep a record I took a quick jpeg every few hours as I worked. After viewing them as a slide show I thought it would be interesting to show the result as a video that records the progress of the painting.

The resulting (slightly jumpy) video is towards the bottom of the sketchbook page.

Interesting fact - a group of Ravens is called an unkindness.(stifles a yawn)
