New WIP: Harris Hawk

I apologize for not posting in awhile. Last month was the Waterfowl Festival and I took a little break from painting after I finished up work for it. Then, I returned home with a nasty cold and that hindered my desire to paint. November was pretty much a wash for getting any artwork done. So, I'm feeling much better now and I'm back at it!

On the easel currently is a 36 x 24 oil painting of a Harris Hawk. I photographed this Harris Hawk at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum during their Raptor Free Flight program. This hawk has just landed on an old snag and is balancing itself. I don't have the luxury of a large studio space or large easel so it's been a challenge painting this one on my little table easel! I've been working on it turned on its side.

Here's a detail shot:

And here's the entire painting:
