Thank you! If it were in actual work-size you'd see the brushstrokes on it. I'm striving to get the 'impression of detail'typical of oils.

Very nice! I love how you did his face, the beard and his hair look so real, and he has such a calm, peaceful look on his face. And one gotta love the white raven, I want one :la: ! Well done!

Thank you! Living with quite a few pets myself I tried to convey a sort of amused resignation at the black one's behaviour, sort of 'ravens will be ravens'...

And, doing research for this one, it was interesting to learn that white ravens do exist. I'd love to see one in real life.

They do? I've seen bids which are close to ravens and crows (though I don't know their name) and which are also supposed to be black, to have white spots all over their bodies. As if they had several white feathers stolen from pigeons, haha!
