5"x7" oil on Gessobord
I took this photo at the Woodland Park zoo in Seattle. He wasn't a zoo animal, but had flown down to see what was going on, probably looking for snacks from visitors.
It's been a while since I took the picture so I don't recall what the lighting was like that day but the crow seemed to have an interesting sort of mauve color reflecting off his feathers. I thought it looked lovely against the black so I decided to go with that in the background to tie it all together.
(SOLD. Sorry, but this painting sold within a couple hours of offering it for sale, so it was no longer available by the time I wrote this post. Keep checking back for the next one, or take a look at other paintings that are still available!)
