Here I am on Day 9 of my challenge. I have finished this painting earlier than all of my previous pieces. On this daily challenge I am not trying to please anyone else with a likeness of their pet so I suppose I appear haphazard and laxidasical. Technically this painting is weak. The subject though I love! I have wanted to depict these fascinating birds for many years!!! The reference image I used was one I pulled from the web spontaniously this morning. My rendition is poor in it’s perspective and accuracy of detail and not creative of me at all. Nonetheless, this is what I came up with for today. It has at the very least inspired me to do more with crows and/or ravens.
Over the next several days I will continue this challenge of a painting a day, however, I will be away from my studio. So while away I will keep sketches simple though hopefully still thoughtful and pleasing.
Thanks to anyone that reads my blog and views my work! I appreciate critics, thoughts and ideas. If anyone would like me to sketch something inparticular simply send along a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do my best to work your favs into my challenge.
