Laughing Raven

Another raven, this time laughing. I really love how these two raven paintings turned out. I especially like the brushwork. And they were really fun to paint.
This one has already found a home.

These last two raven pieces are inspiring--I'd love to paint some of these birds!

Thanks Cooper. It was really fun to almost "sculpt" the feathers with my brush strokes. Go for it! I think I want to try more too.

You got such a great range of color and texture in these last 2 raven pictures... and the story makes it even more interesting. Great job!

Deb, they're beautiful. Are these from photos or from memory?

I happened onto your site tonight for the first time. I like your rich painterly style.

I'm a fan of ravens and crows and have wanted to paint them myself for some time. These are great. Glad I stopped by.
