View Full Version : Hawk

This is a little hawk that I painted in watercolor. The size is about 8"X10". Watercolor glazing (light glazes of yellow, blue and red) works really well for getting the "underglow". I think it would probably be easy to do in acrylic as well. Shari<IMG SRC="http://www.wetcanvas.com/Critiques/User/hawk.jpg" border=0>

Hi Shari,
This picture of the hawk is really beautiful!
I love the way you use the watercolour and the 'underglow' you mentioned is very effective - I am making a note of it. I tried to look at your website but was 'forbidden' http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/frown.gif

Superb job....very nice!!!

And as goes acrylic, in my opinion, it is easier than watercolors, oils, whatever. They are very forgiving, and you never have to worry about them muddying up! Plus you need not concern yourself with the ordering of glazing. You can place one on top of another, on top of another...etc; Nothing need be hit or miss with acrylics.

Fine work once again!

Truly beautiful, Sharii! Your use of colour and light is wonderful! Even though he is sitting still, there is so much action. You can almost see his chest rise and fall with his rapid breathing. To me, he looks like he is just taking a short rest before he once again flies off after his prey.

Sharii, I like this watercolour piece. I have yet to try watercolour again. He looks like he is looking at something, then he is probably going to take off.
