one day a friend gave me a link to some medieval online radio station. i've been listening to it a whole lot  ever since, since it's just wonderful:)! then one night this one song was playing which was called "der rabe und die taube" (the raven and the pigeon, by "divina comedia" (www.divinacommedia.ch) and i don't quite remember how it actually happened, but i just felt terribly sad about that song! it was a very beautiful song with sad lyrics i think and a sad, quiet melody. the lyrics don't have to do anything with the eventual picture but i think it was something about a loss, and my mindmovies got started and i just needed to put that down then:)! it ended up being an elf woman who was just killed by some ogre in the woods. she was running inside them to seek a shelter in between the trees and the mist, but the ogre was just faster than her... i realized that i had never drawn something being killed before, i think... *g*. the raven is not symbolizing death here, but maybe more a friend, her friend, flying away, not being able to have helped her at that moment... maybe she is the pigeon then? i don't know, i'd looove to hear that song again some day to see what it feels like with the picture... hm...listen to the song here: www.youtube.com/watch coloured pencils and watercolours.
