This is close to being done. I might tweak the feet and branch some, but the bird itself is finished. I hope this transmits ok - it seems dark on my monitor. C&C appreciated.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/09-Dec-2006/83835-osprey.jpg

Great bird Dave . Very well done I espcially like the limb perch. The whole thing looks so photo realistic.

Yes, the Perch did it for me...I've seen one of those sitting like that in a sky that color at my Dad's place...with binoculars...came out very well Dave. While I'm at it, thank you for the great pictures you've been putting in the Library.

Lovely; is this done on white or black scratch board? What kind of paint or ink did you use? Will you be scratching in more intense highllights?

Thanks for the comments. TJ, this started off as black clayboard, but I ended up scraping off the black background and using acrylic paint for the sky. The bird is tinted with colored ink. I might put in some more highlights eventually.

Very nice work. But you sure went about it the hard way using the black clayboard and scraping it all off!!! :-) Was that planned or an evolving moment?

Incredible work Dave, everytime I come see what you all are doing I am really impressed. Scratchboard is such a beautiful medium.
