The Raven by lcbailey The Raven by lcbailey
Inspired From Edgar Allen Poe' poem that we all know an love "The Raven" The reference image was converted in to a negative, to represent the negativity of the Narrator. (The narrator who keeps asking questions when he know the Raven will continue to give him the same answer "Nevermore" Expecting a different answer with each question he falls further in to despair.) I then painted the negative twice. One in a very realistic fashion, and then once again in a very rough sketchy manner. (This represents the the before and after state of the narrator. Happily in love, and then distraught over his loss.) I then combined, or overlayed the two using a difference method to get the final painting.

Here is a real canvas view:

Thanks, I love this one too. My wife wants it in our master bedroom, but I'm not sure I want to wake up to that looking at me every morning, or worse go to sleep with it looking at me every night!

It's hanging in our bedroom, but on the wall our bed is against so we can't see it when we sleep.
