another sketch in my book of Kells sketchbook

acrylic sketch in my book of Kells sketchbook
..another sketch in my book of Kells sketchbook. I started the sketch on the right side first, and the look of how the crows are shaped around the head reminded me a bit of Klimt's “Mermaids” painting.. so the left side was added later as sort of an homage to that painting. This is acrylic, with a little bit of graphite – and some sanding and scraping too. The words on the left page are from the text on the book page showing through, which reads “the head appears in various guises”. (9x6”)
