British Banded Crow - SOLD

This started out as a joke. My friend, who is a resident of London, posted this photo - several folks suggested I paint it but since normally animals are not my favorite subject I doubted it would happen. Then, the more I looked at it, the more I found the idea appealing - so I decided to stylize it and give it a whack. I gessoed over a canvas I wasn't fond of and got started. Turned out to be an entertaining little project. When I think of banded birds, crows are not what come to mind. Why would anyone band a crow??
