This beautiful raptor is seriously endangered. I was fascinated by the beautiful colour of the eye and just had to paint it. It is 50 x 60 cm on gallery wrapped canvas and is painted in heavy bodied acrylics. Thanks so much for looking.

A real predator, Chammi. The eye is so expressive, and excellent feathering. Very well done. We still have red kites in a few parts of the UK.

Lovely painting Chammi, I love the way you've painted the feathers and the background colour was a really good choice. I love watching kites - they are doing really well here in Scotland. There's a farm not that far away where they put out food for the kites and you can watch them from a hide. The most I have seen together is 32.

Glad you liked it Kay. That is really good news that you are able to watch the kites in Scotland.

Many thanks Federico. I like the fact that you think it 'shines'.:)
