Watercolour on 425 gsm Saunders Waterford CP
28.5cm x 38cm
Back in December I had a surprise visitor on our balcony, a juvenile Australian Hobby falcon. I was lucky enough to get some photos of him before he caught his breath and flew off.
In this watercolour I wanted to create a more abstract look so after developing his glaring stare I played with colour and texture to find a patterned feel to the rest of the painting.
I have been very lucky to have some time in my studio as we were spending a week getting out and about but after several gourmet lunches we both needed to stay home and have a rest and for me this gave me painting time which I am so grateful of as I have a lot of difficulty staying away from my brushes.
