Dancing Flowers in the Home of the Ravens

I really wanted to watercolor today before I began painting with acrylics. (I have 3 that need finishing.) Watercolor seems so flowy and it's easy to get lost in the colors and the process. I began with an idea to paint grasses. I wanted to lift bits here and there and I decided to use my new calligraphy brush for the sticks and twigs. I decided it needed the birds when I was nearly finished to give a sense of space and maybe purpose. This is kind of a dreamy piece and rather ethereal. It's a high key piece that I think has enough information in it to let the viewer wander around and dream.
