Golden Eagle study complete.


Apologies for the quality of my photograph,there's quite a lot of glare to deal with here from the graphite.I'll post a decent scan on here once ive had it done.Well i finally finished it after a mornings flurry of activity in the studio and i'm very happy with the result.I absolutely love the noble,fearless nature of the golden eagle and i think ive managed to capture that in this study.And so with job done i'm going to take a day or two off and if the weather holds get down to the hamble river and titchfield haven reserve armed with camera,bins and sketch pad to see what i can find before commencing preparatory work for my next piece which is an unusual one these days for me, a dog portrait.i was asked by an old friend if i could do a portrait of his partners old labrador that passed away recently from some supplied photo's,and so i'll do my best as i know it was a well loved dog.

I love your eagle. We see lots of bald eagles in our area and I love to draw them, they are such beautiful and powerful birds.
