Sodejuu, this could be so out of a scene from Alfred Hitchcock!

What a creepy mood it has unbelievable. I don't know if that's what you wanted but it's definitely what i feel, and gosh do i like it!

Érg mooi.

well you can't paint rooks,ravens or crows on a happy sunny day can you?

René is right! This is a wonderful creepy mood and the perspective emphasizes it, too. Great painting!
