Moonlit-RavenSometimes when I can’t decide on a daily painting to start I’ll look through the daily painting challenges at Daily Paintworks (DPW). It’s not because I have hit the dreaded artist block, it usually cause I cannot narrow it down or focus. Sometimes it’s a technique I want to improve on or a palette I would like to limit myself to, OR it just cause I love a challenge.

It’s never been said that I am not competitive. It’s not even so much that I want to compete against another. It’s more about rising to the challenge.

This particular challenge: The Raven challenge  is to paint this black Raven by mixing your own blacks.
The important thing is to have interesting values, reflective colors and some blacks to describe it.

I created black using Ultramarine Blue dark with Burnt Umber. I didn’t use the given image of a raven but another I had found on Pinterest.

To my pleasant surprise this morning, i found it had been chosen as a DPW Facebook pick and a DPW auction pick!
