Red tailed Hawk




This is a sketch with a bit of prismacolor pencil for color.  I am still sketching from the Bird Book . . BIRDS by Lee Hammond.

I am in the midst of redoing the whole living room guts and all, so I've been remiss in not getting around to everyone's blog.  I learn so much from all of you and enjoy your art and comments. Thank you.

Please stop around, enjoy and learn from the truly talented artist at Paint Party Friday.

Blessings,
Janet
