A masterpiece, I love the way you've painted the light hitting the feathers giving them that nice sheen. :)

Thanks, the reason I painted this particular picture was because someone told me theyd been looking their whole life for a nice painting of a slightly ragged looking raven. So I made it as a gift.

Lovely work.
Wise indeed, a quicker takeoff into a breeze. I like the way the grass suggests air movement.

Thanks, I sat in a field of dry grasses for awhile with my camera trying to decide what I wanted to do.

Or if you look around you might find some raptor shows in your area. I just went to a free one and got great pics for reference for future paintings. I see you are a painter as well.

Shopping centers seem to have a lot of Crows.
Saw a Murder of Crows flying over last week.

I will have to try Painting one.
