New Art Work - White-tailed Eagles

It's been a while since I updated my blog, so I thought I would post up two recently completed White-tailed Eagle pieces.

This portrait is mainly completed in HB pencil, with a softer lead for darker areas. I was trying not to be too detailed with it!

A4 size on Bristol Board paper. There will be prints available soon.

This next painting is of this year's Fife youngster, who's parents are Turquoise 1 and Z.  I couldn't resist painting 'White T' - as the youngster is now known thanks to its white wing tags with a black letter 'T' on them.  I watched this eagle as a little fluff ball with its sibling, who sadly died around a month old. It was first twins to have hatched for 1 & Z.  Thankfully, 'T' successfully fledged. You can read more about 'White T' on the RSPB East Scotland Sea Eagle's blog here

'White-tailed Eagle, White T', acrylic on watercolour paper, 10" x 10".  Reference photo by R Evans and used with permission. I may have prints available of this in due course, I just need to sort out a test print first.
