Thought and Memory by MistiqueStudio Thought and Memory by MistiqueStudio
In Norse mythology, Odin (more correctly "Othinn") had two ravens, Huginn ("Thought") and Muninn ("Memory"). Although this painting originally had nothing to do with anything Norse, I thought the ravens' names made a good title for this piece.

16" x 20", watercolor, 2007.

*gasp*
Wow, what a mindblowing work. This is genious! I also want to paint ravens all the time, but I can't really think about a way to start, because they're all black and so it's very hard to get contrast into it. Some painters do it with blue reflections, but you showed a whole new way here, and it looks great :) I really have to try ravens!

Haha...actually I'd like to try to re-paint this piece (or do another piece with the same title) in which I do a little bit better job on the contrast, so one can see more details. Thanks! :)
