This is a piece that I did on commission. The fine lady asked for a raven with Poe’s “The Raven” somehow incorporated in the piece. So this is what I came up with.
It is very similar to my owl piece. Personally, I like the owl piece more. It has a vibrance and a shine that the raven doesn’t. Which is why before I give the painting to the commissioner I will go over the piece with a gloss varnish. Hopefully that will bring about some improvement.
