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's masterful.
