This is the second watercolor study recently completed for an upcoming wildlife exhibition. I was happy with the way that the Eagle Owl came out so was inspired to do another watercolor using a similar format. In the past I have done a number of raptor and owl studies (mostly in watercolor) including a similar version of this one. I have always loved large falcons and this particular bird which I saw in Hong Kong has served as inspiration many times. I'm still learning the characteristics and plumage of Sakers so was happy spending time on this portrait. I hope to put together all I have learned about them into a larger painting one day, in the meantime I'm happy working on studies such as this. Size is 11" X 7 1/2".

Beautiful work once again Jeremy.

As a birthday present to myself I bought Floyd Scholz's fantastic book "Birds of Prey" with a couple of paintings in mind. I'll be very happy if they measure up to your own!

Thanks once again for your comments Peter.
Now I'm really looking forward to seeing some of those new paintings of yours!
