Yoga Ravens

When I left the yoga studio last week, I had the idea of a raven doing yoga. So after a lot of sketching the first silly yoga raven appeared. Bird Challenge 83

But during painting I found it very hard for the poor raven to sit in a cross-legged yoga pose – raven anatomy is different (or I am not able to paint in a natural looking way, because what we take for a birds knee is their ankle and bends just in the other direction than our knee).

So I found the upward- and the downward-facing dog poses more raven-friendly (or more painter friendly) and they even can do it in a quite elegant manner (in fact better than I can do).
