View the making of “Tension”

These two crows are suspended in a moment of tension as they fight over this length of string. It seems to me that tension is just another form of balance. The only way tension remains is if the two opposing forces continue equally. I hand painted the red of the string since that is the main focus of the piece.

“Tension” is a collagraph print made from matboard, pieces of tape, string, modeling paste and marks made with a pencil.
