This uncopyrighted drawing by Manet was the inspiration for a new painting. Daily Paintworks asked for us to paint a scene of superstition. I chose to base mine on Ravens. As you may have noticed, this drawing is based on the superstitious poem, "The Raven" by the great Edgar Allan Poe. I think Manet did an excellent job with shading to create a moody feel. My version is to follow this post.
