And Then There Were Three

Raven Number 3
6x6 Oil

The last of this little study. It gave me a good idea of how (and if) I want to approach a  larger
triptych of these guys. I see I need to warm up this particular bird to match the other two, but after seeing them together, I like this little trio. Can't wait to do a larger version!

Raven Triptych Study

After my PAN (Project Art For Nature) orientation on Saturday I have to say I'm really excited about this project and the fabulous and diverse group of artists. I was very inspired and am now wanting my studies to include more birds - especially the Sandhill Cranes. I  am dreaming of a telephoto lens and trips out west to Yellowstone for more reference shots of the wildlife!

A beautiful set of 3. Almost looks like one bird sitting, stepping and taking off. Also nice to hear some happiness and excitement in your voice. Cool Deb, very cool!
