Kelly - Paintings 13

(watercolor)

...a watery rendering of an American Kestrel, our smallest and most colorful falcon. Back in Autumn Matty and I went to a photo shoot of raptors at RAPTOR, Inc., a raptor rehab facility. This is a painting of "Steel," who is blind in his left eye. He perches a lot in this posture, because he doesn't like to turn his blind eye towards someone.

Beautiful - a minimum of brush strokes with a very pleasing combination of colours

Beautiful kestrel. You captured how his eye sits beneath his eyebrow, his long toes typical of falcons ....
