A few years ago, I was painting my Caw Girls series of paintings.  I found this first one that needed more work so painted and shaped a bit of that.  But wasn’t that happy with the outcome so...

Do over.

But this time, it looks like instead of a crow on her hat, it’s a raven because it’s so big.  

Still works.

First painting = Jester’s Pet/Caw Girl series

Second painting = Darkness Loves Company/Caw Girl series

Both are on 1/2 sheet Arches 140# cold press paper.

Did these before starting the Turner’s Apprentice book and exercises.

Thanks so much for your comments, Jennifer (it was an open photo shoot for Sweetie and his photo friends and she did have the outfit on - but not the crow! ha ha).
Thanks JD!!
Thanks Laura - glad you like the humor in them!
