WDE - 042712 - Hawk

Gouache on 6x6" Bristol vellum. Green yellow not as apparent in original which was cropped just a bit for better composition. May make some further improvements and will post if I do. For now, this is it.

Thanks for some lovely images this week, Lin.

c&c most always welcome

Ooooh - gouache is nice for this. I like it very much. Good background, just enough detail and the eye goes straight to the eye,heh - make sense?

I like the loose brushstrokes building volume/mass for the bird.

Looks like this hawk has a target in mind, and is just waiting to swope down and get it! Kurlie 8-)
