INKY CROW


Painted with black India ink and red watercolor.  This crow sits in my art room so I guess she's an assistant and model, too :)  Not real, but a gift to myself.  I've been given 2 other crow models from friends in the past so have 3 models I should use more often!  

Don't Pet a Crow

11 x 15 inches on Fabriano 140# cold press paper

Still slowly working on the portraits of the grands...I have a deadline (will I make it?).

The red leash is a delightful way to add color and interest. His look certainly says, "Do NOT pet me!"

Your crow immediately caught my attention under my blog list when I logged on to my blog this afternoon. I love the way you have caught the attitude of the crow with a minimum of strokes.
I, also like the touch of red...it's masterful.

I love your sense of humor in this piece, Rhonda. The painting is very unique and I love that!

Thanks, Carol. I look up on my bookshelf and see her and she doesn't look like she wants to be touched! ha ha

Barb, thanks so much - what a kind thing to say!!

Sadami, I'm calling her a she - I have one that is definitely a he that a friend brought me from Tennessee - he's a big crow!!

Thanks, Sherry. Better to laugh than cry, right? :)
