Creature feature

Had a painting session with Nick Kokis a few days ago and this fellah was the end result. I may spend a bit more time with it.

To call it a still life would probably be wrong but we were using a plastic crow as a model. After a few beer,  I lost interest in the model and focused on colour. Nick made some suggestions along the way so this piece seems to have the flavour of his work.

As the painting progressed the crow seemed to evolve into something more like a baby elephant or one of those masks doctors wore during the plague. If I were to pin down this character with more detail, he'll either need more wing, big floppy ears or a large brim hat. Though I kind of like him as he is.
