Two Old Crows Revisited

Patty - one of my talented watercolor students at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta mentioned that she thought it would be fun to paint the crows (oil painting in my previous post) in watercolor. So...I also thought it would be interesting to see how they change with the different medium - so here they are in watercolor. I'll have to say that I like the watercolor version best! How about you?

This painting is 12" x 8" and it is painted on the heavy white printmaking paper. I did find out that you cannot use liquid masque on this paper - it lifts the top surface of the paper - don't do it!!!

As much as I love watercolors and it is my favorite medium, I must confess that I do like the oil version better! LOL I don't know why...maybe because of the texture of your support and a bit more detail in the feathers...?
